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

Last Thursday I took a bearish bias, but the price did not go anywhere, just consolidating. I wasn’t exactly wrong, but I wasn’t right either. The price is simply going sideways in between two key levels, so there is no reason to be either bullish or bearish. I have no bias and there will probably be better opportunities elsewhere today, although there are high-impact news items due over the next 24 hours for both currencies, so something interesting might happen.AUDUSD
