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

Yesterday I again saw the short-term outlook as unclear, and I had no directional bias. I feel the same way today, although the picture is looking more bearish still with three resistant trend lines and new lower resistance forming again at 0.7812 suppressing the price. Nevertheless, there is reasonably strong support below at 0.7750 and no long-term trend.
