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

The price has risen in this pair, as it tends to do when risk sentiment improves, and we seem to see the Turkish Lira stabilizing. The price just peeked above the strong bearish price channel which has set the tone for many days now, visible in the price chart below, but has again turned down.

It looks as if movement here is going to be limited until there is a bullish break above 111.19. I would be bearish later today if the price can get established above that level.

USDJPY

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