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.

EUR/USD Analysis

I wrote las Thursday that the price looked more likely to rise than fall today, so I would be much more comfortable taking long rather than short trade entries. If the price could trade above 1.1344 for a couple of hours, I thought that would be a bullish sign.

I was correct insofar as the major move of the day was bullish, unfortunately the price breached the support enough to render it not useful except as a rough guide.

There is a long-term bearish trend, but the U.S. Dollar is weak right now, so we are seeing a firm counter-trend bullish move.

A sustained break above 1.1344 would be a bullish sign, but reversals at either 1.1344 or 1.1298 could be good trades – I have no directional bias, but I think that long trades have a better probability than short trades overall.EURUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning the EUR or the USD.
