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 yesterday that the rise from 0.7054 was not looking especially convincing for bulls so I took no directional bias. I was wrong: the price rose quite strongly during the Asian session, helped by a sharp upwards movement in the NZD, and the nearest resistance level was taken out while 0.7139 remained intact. It seems 0.7054 has been strong support. The price has been selling off from the rise over the last few hours, but the odds are probably still very weakly win favour of another rise once the price turns, maybe to 0.7139. If the price can get established above 0.7139 it would be a bullish sign. There is no medium or long-term trend in this pair so it can be difficult to trade profitably.AUDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding the AUD. Concerning the USD, there will be a release of CPI data at 1:30pm London time.
