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 we saw a strong and clear short-term bearish trend line holding the price down. If the price broke above it strongly, that would be a bullish sign, and the price would be likely to go on to retest the recent highs under 1.3500. This opportunity did not set up, and the price continued to fall instead, with the Canadian Dollar helped along by the price of Crude Oil closing at a new 4-month high price.

The picture is bearish and if the price breaks below 1.3285 during today’s session on higher than average volatility, I would take a bearish bias on this currency pair, especially if it happens during the New York session with Crude Oil trading at new higher highs.

USDCAD
