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 I had no directional bias and the only useful thing I could say was that it looked as though the price may flatten out at the nearby support of 0.7116. I was wrong insofar as the price broke below that level, but it did not go much further, so my relative scepticism about the bearish momentum may have been somewhat justified.

The price now seems to be starting to make a bullish “U” shape which suggests it is truly bottoming out now. This is far from confirmed, but I think that if the price continues to struggle higher and get established above 0.7112 during the New York session, we would be likely to see still higher prices, although 0.7139 looks likely to hold over the short-term.AUDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the AUD or the USD.
