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 the buying looked quite solid, but a failure to break above 0.7000 and a bearish reversal there could be an attractive place technically to enter a short trade later. This turned out not to be a good call as although the resistance initially held, it only gave a few pips before the price was able to make a bullish break above 0.7000. Ironically, the interest rate cut yesterday in Australia had the effect of boosting the Australian stock market which in turn has probably seen a capital inflow from abroad which in turn has boosted the AUD. If this pattern builds up some steam, we could see the price rise, with no obvious resistance until 0.7047 or perhaps the inflection point at about 0.7030.

I take a weak and cautious bullish bias for now above 0.7000.AUDUSDConcerning the USD, there will be a release of the ADP Non-Farm Employment Change forecast at 1:15pm London time followed at 3pm by ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI data. Regarding the AUD, there will be a release of Retail Sales data at 2:30am.
