AUD/USD Forex Signal - 12 July 2018

Yesterday’s signals produced a profitable long trade from the bullish bounce at 0.7362 and it might be wise to seriously consider closing it out in profit (at the time of writing).

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 if the price did now continue down to 0.7362, which would be very unlikely, it should make a strong bullish bounce. I was correct about a bullish bounce, although the facts that the bounce has not been very strongly bullish and the level at 0.7362 was reached at all suggest a more bearish picture. However, price movement looks relatively constrained, so there might be better opportunities elsewhere today. I have a weakly bearish bias now below 0.7388.AUDUSD

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