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 yesterday that the long-term technical picture was bullish, with a major double bottom above the big round number at 1.3000.

The price has continued to rise, although on relatively low volatility which suggests we may get a bearish pull back soon. However, the price has generated a new higher low at the key psychological level of 1.3250, which is a bullish sign. The line of least resistance is definitely upwards.

I again take a bullish bias on this currency pair today, looking for long trades at bullish bounces at any identified support level.USDCADConcerning the USD, there will be a release of PPI data at 1:30pm London time, followed by testimony by the Chair of the Federal Reserve before Congress at 3pm. Regarding the CAD, the Governor of the Bank of Canada will be speaking at 2:45am.
