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 yesterday that the line of less resistance was upwards, but I had little confidence in this move for the time being. This was a good call as the price has continued to try to rise, but so far has been unable to even reach let alone break past the resistance level at 1.1455.

The U.S. Dollar is weak everywhere and this is helping the price rise here. I think today a break above 1.1455 is quite likely to happen and it would be a bullish sign if it does. However, we have a major FOMC release due later which is likely to cause some volatility in the U.S. Dollar and this could push the price anywhere so if the bullish break comes before that release, don’t put too much faith into it.

I would take a bullish bias after the FOMC release if the price rises then to trade above 1.1455 after being below it.EURUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding the EUR. Concerning the USD, there will be a release of the FOMC Statement and Federal Funds Rate at 7pm London time, followed by the FOMC Press Conference half an hour later.
