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 wrote yesterday that this pair was simply not attractive to trade now, because there are no obviously and clear levels now for a long way in either direction. We only had a weak, short-term bullish channel holding up the price. There has been absolutely no change to this technical situation, a weak bullish channelling very far from any key support or resistance. I have no directional bias and think there are likely to be better opportunities in other currency pairs.

 

AUDUSD

Regarding the USD, there will be releases of CPI and Retail Sales data at 1:30pm London time. Concerning the AUD, there will be releases of Employment Change and Unemployment Rate numbers at 2:30am.
