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 I saw 1.3262 as likely to be the pivotal level: if it was not breached and Crude Oil rose again later today when the U.S. returns from holiday, I would take a bearish bias here as we might see a nice downwards movement with no support to break it until 1.3165. This was not a great call as the price continued to rise to the next resistance level at 1.3282 before rejecting it to the pip and turning very bearish and falling quite a long way.

The picture now looks more bearish as the USD continues to weaken, and we have new lower resistance at 1.3218. I would take a bearish bias if we get a retrace to that level later and a firm bearish rejection, but it looks right now that the support at 1.3165 is likely to be hit first before that happens.

USDCAD
