Long Trade Ideas

  • Long entry following some bullish price action on the H1 time frame immediately upon the next touch of 0.6969, 0.6955, or 0.6940.

  • Place the stop loss 1 pip below the local swing low.

  • Adjust the stop loss to break even once the trade is 20 pips in profit.

  • Remove 50% of the position as profit when the trade is 20 pips in profit and leave the remainder of the position to ride.

Short Trade Ideas

  • Short entry following some bearish price action on the H1 time frame immediately upon the next touch of 0.6993, 0.7008, or 0.7035.

  • Place the stop loss 1 pip above the local swing high.

  • Adjust the stop loss to break even once the trade is 20 pips in profit.

  • Remove 50% of the position as profit when the trade is 20 pips in profit and leave the remainder of the position to ride.

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 yesterday that we had a more bearish picture in this currency pair. I was looking for a bearish failure at 0.7035 to trigger a fall towards the 0.7000 area. This was a good call, the price got to within less than 1 pip from 0.7035 just before New York opened and the price subsequently fell all the way to 0.6977. Some days ago, I noted that this failure at a 50-day high near 0.7080 could trigger a major medium-term bearish reversal and this is what we have got now.

The USD is broadly strong, but it may be that the price here begins to stabilize as we have a cluster of three key support levels between 0.6969 and 0.6940. Therefore, I expect this price to consolidate at about 0.6969 over the coming day. I take no directional bias here now.AUDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the USD or the AUD.
