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

I was wrong to hold a bullish bias yesterday as the price ended up moving down, getting very close to the support level at 0.8039 just a few hours ago. It has rebounded strongly from this area, which is a bullish sign. I am still bullish overall as there have not been any obvious major lower highs, and as the support has not even been touched, so the bullish pattern is remaining intact. This indicates a relatively strong Australian Dollar, which like the Japanese Yen, is holding up relatively well against the U.S. Dollar.AUDUSD 

Regarding the USD, there will be a release of CB Consumer Confidence data at 3pm London time, and President Trump will be delivering a state of the union address at 2am. Concerning the AUD, there will be a release of CPI data at 12:30am.
