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 I had a bearish bias below 0.7466 and this turned out badly: I was completely wrong. This pair actually rose strongly, not only breaking above 0.7466 but also printing a new higher support level in the same area, at 0.7454. At the time of writing, it looks as if the price is going to advance further, basing off 0.7454. This suggests that if the U.S. CPI data later is weak, this pair will rise relatively strongly, so there might be some strong bullish momentum to exploit on smaller time frames later. However, although I cannot pick an exact level, it is quite possible that the area around 0.7500 will provide resistance to cup such a movement.
