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 I thought the price was likely to fall further if it could not quickly get established above 0.7039 at least. However, if there was 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 entry.

I was partially correct, as the price initially made a failed attempt to break above 0.7039 before turning bearish again and making new lows, but the price then rose to recover and now seems to have flipped 0.7039 to become new support, although this is not a level I would like to rely upon yet.

The Australian Dollar is very weak right now but the area between here and 0.6985 is an area of strong long-term support, so we are likely to see a hard struggle here over the short-term between bulls and bears, which will probably make this currency pair difficult to trade.AUDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the AUD or the USD.
