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 the price was in the middle of an uncertain battle between buyers and sellers. This situation has persisted, with a bearish trend line being broken but a new slightly higher resistance level holding the price to a double top at 0.7839. The support at 0.7785 also looks healthy, so a continuing range within this area looks like a probable short-term outcome. I have no directional bias. The Australian Dollar looks a fraction stronger than the New Zealand Dollar.
