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.

NZD/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that if the U.S. inflation data was weak, and we saw a weakening of the U.S. Dollar as the case for rate hikes is undermined slightly as a result, then the NZD could be the very best currency to be long of against a falling greenback. This was a good call as the inflation data, while not exactly weak, was certainly not strong, and we saw the U.S. Dollar continue to fall and consequently this pair has risen. It appears there is minor resistance at 0.6820 which has held this rise, so if we see the price trading at about 0.6825 later, I would take a bullish bias as this would be a bullish sign. However, I think it is looking likely that we will see a consolidation below 0.6820 and above the support at 0.6765 today.NZDUSD
