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.

GBP/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that there was good bullish momentum here, and I was bullish above 1.3127, expecting a rise to at least 1.3217 as quite a likely scenario today. This was a great call, as the price continued to rise, remaining above support, and reached even beyond the level which I identified as a target at 1.3217.

There is good bullish momentum here and no obvious resistance until 1.3350, so there is room for the price to rise further without meeting friction, although there is a psychological level at 1.3250. I would take a bullish bias if the price can break above that area, but I would remain generally bullish above 1.3183 and a little bullish above 1.3128.

The thing to watch out for today is the U.S. inflation data due later. The Dollar is currently weak, and the Pound has been boosted by positive comments coming from the European Union on the Brexit deal.

GBPUSD

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