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 it looked as if the bearish momentum would carry the price down to 0.7075, the next support level. My bearish bias was correct although the price was just a pip or two off hitting that low before it turned around and rose very strongly, so it was a good call.

The price has now seen a very strong rise, although the rise in the NZD has been even stronger. The long-term bearish trend line shown in the price chart below has been invalidated and we have new higher support levels. I think 0.7175 is likely to hold so I would take a bullish bias today above that level, in line with the strong bullish momentum we have already seen. However, I think this approach would be even better today with the NZD/USD currency pair.AUDUSDThere is nothing important due today regarding either the USD or the AUD.
