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 had a bullish bias above 1.3050, but the price was unable to quite reach that level, falling instead after touching the resistance at 1.3047.

This pair has become very interesting as it is making a classic bullish consolidation below key long-term resistance which suggests a building of enough pressure to eventually produce a dramatic bullish breakout. I had thought the FOMC release yesterday would probably be the catalyst for such a move, but the release has instead sent the U.S. Dollar a little lower, so it has not happened.

It seems now that as long as the bullish trend line shown in the price chart below holds, the price will remain likely to eventually make a strong bullish break above 1.3050, so I maintain a very weakly bullish bias above 1.2950 and a stronger bullish bias above 1.3050.
