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.

GBP/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that there is a lot of volatility here, you can try to trade the swings, but the price will be very vulnerable this week to political developments as we approach Friday’s Brexit deadline. When an extension is formally agreed, expect the price to rise, and it will probably remain supported at or a little below 1.3000.

We still have the same situation, with the price essentially consolidating. There is technically downwards pressure, which is interesting, but I think if a long-term extension is announced before this weekend’s current Brexit deadline, the price will rise by at least a hundred pips or maybe two hundred.
