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 due to the absence of trend I took no directional bias and saw the AUD/USD as a better pair to be trading than this one, as that was where the action is likely to be later during the Asian session. This was a good call. The picture is more bearish but less so than the AUD/USD currency pair. Either long or short trades from rejections of the nearest key levels are likely to be just as good as one another. I again take no directional bias today and think we will see more action in the AUD/USD currency pair.NZDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the NZD or the USD.
