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 last Thursday that the AUD, along with the NZD, looked best placed to benefit from this new weakness in the USD. It looked as if the price was heading down now over the short-term, but I would be happy to take a bullish bias if there was a healthy bullish bounce later at the new support level of 0.7295. This was a good call, although the bounce came a day too late, and the China / U.S. trade truce has produced a gap up after the weekend and a generally weak U.S. Dollar. The Australian Dollar is the strongest of all the major global currencies now. Weekend gaps such as these are usually filled quite quickly, but there is every reason to be generally bullish. I would not want to enter any long trades until the gap has been filled and we get another bullish bounce in the 0.7295 area.AUDUSD
