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 I would take a bearish bias in line with the trend if the price closed below 0.6950 later for two consecutive hours. It did so, and at the time of writing that trade is 2 pips in profit, but we are breaking into multi-month bearish blue sky now below 0.6940 with ever sign that the price is going to continue to fall to make lower prices.

The Australian Dollar is the weakest major currency at present and there are no support levels to prevent the price falling by at least another 100 pips, so the line of least resistance is clearly downwards.

There is no reason not to be bearish and I take a strongly bearish bias here.
