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 1.1213 would be the day’s pivotal point. I was wrong, it was in fact 1.1204, a few pips lower than that.

The Euro is holding up relatively well in the current risk-off market environment as a semi-safety asset.

There is a long-term bearish trend in this currency pair, but it is not safe to trade with this trend until the price gets established below 1.1200.

If the support at 1.1204 holds, the price is likely to rise towards the 1.1250 area again but may again find this psychological level impossible to clear.EURUSDThere is nothing important due today concerning the EUR. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of Retail Sales data at 1:30pm London time.
