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 we had a mixed picture, due to bearish pressure but plenty of bullish support above 0.7000. I was more inclined to be bullish if the price rose from this supportive area to break the trend line and get established above 0.7100. In fact, the bears managed to push the price below all three support levels, which was a significant bearish development, but the price still remains above the major round number at 0.7000 which can give hope to the bulls.

I think the price is likely to fall further today if it cannot quickly get established above 0.7039 at least. However, if there is a fast move down to 0.6985 and a strong bullish rejection which sees the price recover quickly to settle above 0.7000, there might be scope there for a high reward to risk but improbable strategic long-term long trade entryAUDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning the USD. Regarding the AUD, there will be a release of Retail Sales data at 10:30pm London time.
