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 there was relatively strong bullishness in the NZD at present, so I would remain cautiously bullish here until the FOMC release due later which might push the price anywhere. This was a good call as the price did continue to rise to new highs during that time period. I would be bullish if the price can trade above the high at about 0.6810 later. Overall, there is a positive environment for a “risky” commodity currency such as the NZD, and the price has plenty of room to rise further before the next resistance level is reached.NZDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning the NZD. Regarding the USD, the Chair of the Federal Reserve will be giving a minor speech at 5pm London time.
