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

I was right yesterday in expecting the key levels and trend lines in the chart to hold. There is no long-term trend in this currency pair, and I have no directional bias. It is interesting that the Pound fell yesterday while the Euro rose, it suggests continuing weakness in the Pound as the weak British Government’s political troubles remain endless. There is no long-term trend, so continuing to trade rejections of the key levels shown in that chart below should continue to be a profitable trading approach. This pair still has high volatility, making it attractive to traders. I have no directional bias today.

GBPUSD

There is nothing important due today concerning the GBP. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of Final GDP data at 1:30pm London time.
