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 as bullish momentum was still present, more so than we saw in the AUD/USD pair, so I took a bullish bias here as long as the price remains above 0.6725. This did not work out so well as although the price was above 0.6725 it did not rise much further and is a little lower now than it was 24 hours ago, albeit not by much. I am still broadly bullish, and I would take a bullish bias if we retraced to either 0.6726 or 0.6677 and got a strong bullish bounce at either one of those levels.
NZDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the NZD or the USD.
