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

The price broke down quite strongly yesterday, which was counter-trend but not a very big surprise as the price had already broken below a bullish channel which had held for a relatively long time. The price made its average range by the London close, finding support at 1.3221, but then rose dramatically to make new highs as news leaked (not officially confirmed) that the U.K. and E.U. were coming to the broad outline of a Brexit deal. The more orderly the Brexit, the better the outlook for the British Pound.

At the time of writing the price now is looking bullish, testing the round number at 1.3400 and suggesting still higher prices will be reached later today.GBPUSD
