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 yesterday that this pair was looking increasingly unpredictable, but that I still maintained a bullish bias above 106.68. This turned out to be a wrong approach, as the price has instead fallen, and is breaking through support as I write. This leaves us with 106.68 as the next support. The price action is choppy. It looks as if this pair might be best avoided, as its movement still seems unpredictable. Note that the U.S. Dollar is weak, falling against the Euro and the Pound, as well as the Japanese Yen.usdjpy

There is nothing due today concerning the JPY. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of Building Permits data at 1:30pm London time.
