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.

GBP/USD Analysis

Yesterday saw another downwards movement, which invalidated nearby support and established a new lower resistance level at 1.3132. The chart below shows the price is still established in a wide bearish channel, and the medium-term trend is bearish, but there have been deep swings in both directions. This pair is by far the most volatile of all the major Forex currency pairs, which is due to political instability in the U.K. casting doubt over the economic terms upon which the U.K. will finally leave the European Union in 2019.

A further move down looks likely, meaning that a bearish reversal at 1.3132 would be an attractive trade. However, the 1.3000 level is a crucial psychological level, so a long at a bullish reversal at or close to the support at 1.3018 could also be a very interesting opportunity, especially for the long term.GBPUSD

Regarding the GBP, there will be a release of CPI data at 9:30am London time. Concerning the USD, there will be a release of PPI data at 1:30pm.
