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 price was still in a medium to long-term range, and the levels still looked unreliable, so no change to my approach here for the time being – better opportunities likely elsewhere. This was a good call, as the only setup according to the key levels was a losing trade.

The U.S. Dollar is still quite bullish at present, so higher prices would not be a surprise over the course of today. Much will probably depend upon the U.S. retail sales and PPI data due for release later. A short at 1.3269 after the data release could be interesting if it dovish for the greenback, but overall due to the medium-term lack of trend, I have no directional bias on this pair.

USDCAD

There is nothing of high importance due today regarding the CAD. Concerning the USD, there will be releases of Retail Sales and PPI data at 1:30pm London time.
