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 the picture had become more bearish, despite medium-term strength in the USD, so I was comfortable taking a bearish bias following a rejection of either of the nearby resistance levels. Neither of these levels were reached, but the price fell strongly, so I was at least correct to be looking to the bearish side.

The price now seems to be starting to make a bullish “U” shape which suggests it may be bottoming out now. Another bullish sign is that the NZD appears to be leading the AUD here. I think the price will probably rise from here over the short-term, but 0.6802 looks likely to hold and might provide an opportunity to go short if there is a strong bearish reversal there later.NZDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the NZD or the USD.
