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 this pair looked terrible to trade right now, despite the existence of a possible bearish channel. This was a good call as the Fed Chair’s speech sent the AUD strongly up against the USD. In fact, the AUD, along with the NZD, looks best placed to benefit from this new weakness in the USD. It looks as if the price is heading down now over the short-term, but I would be happy to take a bullish bias if there is a healthy bullish bounce later at the new support level of 0.7295.

AUDUSD

There is nothing important due today concerning the  AUD. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of the FOMC Meeting Minutes at 7pm London time.
