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 would be prepared to take a bullish bias if there was a strong bullish bounce at or very close to the nearest support level at 0.7070. There may also be new higher support at about 0.7090.

This was a fairly good call as the area at about 0.7090 has held.

The price has been bullish over the medium-term, but the pair has to be said to be a long-term bearish formation, albeit a weak one. This has made this pair quite difficult to trade.

It looks now as if the price will move down to test these lows just below 0.7090 and may well fall further. I think the level at 0.7070 will be the important pivotal level of the day, but I have no directional bias here now.AUDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the AUD or the USD..
