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.

NZD/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that I had no directional bias, as the technical situation seemed very confusing and uncertain, although I saw a possibility of a rise from 0.6750 as a bullish “up and under” pattern seemed to be in place. The price did rise strongly from there but then fell very sharply, and at present both the NZD and AUD are falling very strongly. Here, at the time of writing, we are seeing a bearish break below 0.6750, which makes me take a bearish bias on this pair today.NZDUSD

There is nothing important due today concerning either the NZD or the USD.
