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 the technical picture was now more bullish as although we had a long-term bearish trend, we just had a 30-day high close and a bullish break above former resistance at 1.1225 which was quite significant. I thought that the price now would probably consolidate around 1.1250 but may well then resume its advance – but probably not today.

This was a good call as the price was effectively held yesterday by both resistance and support nearby and effectively consolidated around 1.1250. However, the short-term momentum is bullish again and the U.S. Dollar continues to be weak. The signs all point to higher prices today, so we are likely to get a test of the resistance again at 1.1277 which should be today’s pivotal point. If the price can get established above that level, it would be a bullish sign.
