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 had a bullish bias yesterday as the bullish price pattern was remaining intact. Although the last day hasn’t been a fun time for bulls, it must be said that the technical picture has not essentially changed. Support is holding, and higher lows continue. Having said that I do not see this as an especially great pair to be long of, with the Australian Dollar looking less bullish than the European currencies. I maintain a slight bullish bias.AUDUSD

Concerning the USD, there will be a release of the ADP Non-Farm Employment Change at 1:15pm London time, followed by Crude Oil Inventories at 3:30pm, and the FOMC Statement and Federal Funds Rate at 7pm. There is nothing important due regarding the AUD.
