The best method to identify a classic “price action reversal” is for an hourly candle to close, such as a pin bar, a doji, an outside or even just an engulfing candle with a higher close. You can exploit these levels or zones by watching the price action that occurs at the given levels.

USD/CAD Analysis

I wrote last Thursday that I was ready to take a bearish bias if we had gotten a bearish reversal at 1.3120, or a bullish bias if we had gotten a bullish reversal at 1.3045.

This analysis still applies today as the price has just continues to inch down slowly. However, there is no doubt that the short-term price action is a little more bearish, and the Canadian Dollar is relatively strong.

The closer we get to 1.3000, the more chance there is of a major bullish reversal which could provide a good medium or long-term long trade opportunity.USDCADThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the CAD or the USD.
