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

The Australian Dollar was the worst performer last week of all the major currencies, falling strongly against a resurgent U.S. Dollar towards the end of the week. However, shortly after this week’s open, it found support at the level identified at 0.7901, and has risen close to the nearest resistance level of 0.7960. This bullish bounce feels as if it might be significant, but the overall structure remains bearish, so I think 0.7060 will be more likely to hold than to break. A sustained break above that level will be a bullish sign, but the resistance confluent with 0.8000 will be likely to be an even harder test for bulls to overcome.AUDUSD
