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 picture was looking more bearish as the USD continued to weaken, and we had new lower resistance at 1.3218. I was ready to 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. This was a good call as the level at 1.3165 was reached (and then invalidated) before the price began to move up. There is new lower resistance just below 1.3218 at 1.3206 where the price seems to have turned bearish in recent hours. Crude Oil is strong and there is no support until 1.3055 so lower prices look likely. I would take a bearish bias if the price can trade below 1.3150 for a couple of hours on relatively high volatility.
