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 if the dominant bullish pattern built 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 took a weak and cautious bullish bias for now above 0.7000. This was a good call as the price rose before reversing at my resistance level of 0.7047 almost to the pip. The fell from there has been quite strong. That price is the lower boundary of an area of strong resistance, so I expect it to hold for a while. I think the price is more likely to reach the major round number at 0.7000 before it hits 0.7047 again, and if there is a strong bullish bounce at 0.7000, it would probably be a good long trade. I also think the price will fall again from 0.7047, so with a lot of interest and above-average volatility and probably also volume, this is an interesting currency pair to be focusing on when either nearby key level is reached.AUDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding the AUD or the USD. It is a public holiday in the U.S.A.
