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.

 

USD/JPY Analysis

I wrote last Thursday that the levels at 106.68 and 106.43 still looked like good benchmarks for judging whether bulls or bears are in control, however bulls do need to price to move substantially higher soon. This worked out quite well, as the levels held, and the price did move up to finally make a major new high above the psychological level of 107.50. However, the price has fallen back, although it seems to be bottoming around 107.25. This pair has now become the most volatile of all the major Forex pairs, suggesting it will be interesting to trade, but could move unpredictably within wide price ranges. Despite the fall over recent hours, I still maintain a bullish bias above 106.68.
