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 Thursday that although we had got a bullish bounce just above 0.6900, I was not very confident that the price would run bullishly from here. Commodity currencies were generally weak against the USD and the AUD was the weakest such currency of all, with this pair currently sitting in a long-term bearish trend.

I thought a break below 0.6900, if it is sustained, would see a further bearish move down to 0.6882. This was a good call and the very bearish situation continued, in fact we are seeing a repeat bearish wave originating from the flipped level at 0.6882. There is no stronger trend in the Forex market than the bearish trend here. I take a bearish bias today provided the price holds below 0.6883.AUDUSDThere is nothing important due today concerning either the AUD or the USD.
