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 last Wednesday that price action over the past day had made the picture a little more bullish – we saw new higher support slowly taking hold at 0.7002 which was a significant round number. I would be prepared to take a bullish bias if the price got back down there and made a strong bullish bounce.

There was no bounce there after New York opened and the level was quickly invalidated. All we have now is a wide, choppy range between 0.7047 and 0.6950 with no key support or resistance levels within that area. There is a long-term bearish trend, but the price action looks neutral and evenly balanced between bulls and bears.

I would take a bearish bias in line with the trend if the price closes below 0.6950 later for two consecutive hours.AUDUSDThere is nothing important due today concerning either the AUD or the USD.
