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 picture looked more bearish, with the trend line invalidated, and the price struggling to rise above the key psychological level of 0.7250. I was looking for a short from 0.7250 which looked like solid resistance, but the level has been invalidated with the price crossing it now in both directions. The market generally is not a good market for trading at all, but here we see one of the few pairs that has a dominant technical feature – a new short to medium-term bearish channel, which suggests lower prices today. I have a weak bearish bias below 0.7250 if the price is trading below there and the action is bearish shortly after Australia opens for business.AUDUSD

There is nothing important due today concerning either the AUD or the USD. It is a public holiday in the U.S.A. today.
