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.

EUR/USD Analysis

I wrote last Thursday that the price had broken out of its bearish channel and although the Euro was not especially strong, it looked as if this bullish move was quite likely to run further, although possibly not by a lot. This was a good call as the price did trade higher for several hours, before falling from the round number at 1.1400 and selling off fairly strongly as the U.S. Dollar recovered. The Euro is relatively weak but has been boosted in recent hours as the Dollar retreats everywhere as risk assets are benefiting from the deal agreed between U.S. and China over the trade dispute which freezes tariffs for at least another 90 days. However, as the Euro remains relatively weak, it is unlikely to penetrate above the nearby resistance level. If this rally against the Dollar turns around, we could see a good short trade opportunity here, but it is important in this environment to wait for that turn and not to rush it.

EURUSD

There is nothing important due today concerning the EUR. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of ISM Manufacturing PMI data at 3pm London time.
