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.

USD/JPY Analysis

I wrote yesterday that there had been a recovery in the USD, and this had pushed the price up after the bottoming near 108.00. However, the next resistance level at 108.71 had continued to hold, so I thought that we may well see a further downwards movement over the coming hours.

A sustained break above 108.71 would have been a bullish sign.

This was a pretty good call, but neither scenario has really played out. The only change is a new support level, but I feel it may be weak as it is within a weekend price gap which is quite likely to get filled.

There is a long-term bearish trend, but the market is quiet, and we have seen a bottoming out for several days, so probably if the price can trade for a couple of hours above 108.71, it will be likely to go higher still.USDJPYThere is nothing important due today concerning either the USD or the JPY.
