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 continued to move down from 0.7090, it could go all the way to at least 0.7050, so it is worth watching what happens at the current price area carefully. The long-term bearish trend could help bears a great deal here. This was a good call, at least partially, as the 0.7090 area held, and the price fell almost another 50 pips from there during yesterday’s New York session. However, we have seen a strong recovery from that low, and the price is currently testing the 0.7090 area again from below. It might act as resistance again, but I think overall this pair is better avoided unless we get a good bearish reversal at the resistance level of 0.7129.AUDUSD
