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 the price was close to arriving at a confluence of a support level and a long-term bullish trend line, so again, there may be an interesting long opportunity there, and I would again take a bullish bias if there were a strong bounce there. This anticipated bounce did not happen, with the price continuing to fall and slice through all the support. The picture now looks more bearish, with the trend line invalidated, and the price struggling to rise above the key psychological level of 0.7250. There could be an interesting short trade opportunity from his level, if the price continues to struggle to rise above it going into the New York session then I would take a bearish bias today.AUDUSD
