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 yesterday that the price was now close to multi-month lows although the speed of the move down was slowing. There were also some signs of buying at the round number of 1.1200. I was ready to take a short bias following a decisive break below 1.1190 and that never happened, so my scepticism over more downwards movement was a good call.

The daily chart shows something close to a bullish pin candlestick yesterday, and a continuation of the bullish move so far today – rejecting a long-term double bottom area and round number at 1.1200. There is still a bearish trend, but we may have just seen the start of a long-term bullish reversal.

Drilling down to a shorter-term chart shown below, a deeper bullish move will need to break the bearish trendline. There is also a new support level about 1.1200 to watch but I think the trend line is likely to be today’s pivotal point.EURUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the EUR or the USD.
