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.

AUD/USD Analysis

This pair has risen, but it is not one of the top gainers against the USD. The price is also not making long-term high prices, there is still residual resistance above 0.8100. I had thought that the 0.8000 level would cap the price, but the price broke up and gained relatively strongly for a while, helped along by this bullish break. It now looks as if the area at about 0.8039 should become good support. I now have a slightly bullish bias, provided the price remains above 0.8039.
AUDUSD

There is nothing important due today concerning either the AUD or the USD. It is a public holiday in Australia today.
