Short Trade Ideas

  • Short entry following bearish price action on the H1 time frame immediately upon the next touch of 0.6747 or 0.6781.

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

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

  • Take off 50% of the position as profit when the trade is 20 pips in profit and leave the remainder of the position to run.

Long Trade Idea

  • Long entry following bullish price action on the H1 time frame immediately upon the next touch of 0.6687 or 0.6656.

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

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

  • Take off 50% of the position as profit when the trade is 20 pips in profit and leave the remainder of the position to run.

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.

NZD/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that although this pair was only in a weakly bullish situation, it made sense to keep looking to the bullish side, as the price made a new multi-month high, but we really need to see the price get established above the big psychological level of 0.6750 before any bullish move becomes strongly likely – I would take a bullish bias in that scenario.

This was a good call, as the price is holding up (more bullishly than the AUD/USD currency pair is doing), but the price is still failing to reach the resistance 0.6747.

I would still look towards the bullish side and keep an eye out for a strong bullish break above 0.6750 which could signify a major long-term bullish move. I would take a bullish bias on this currency pair in that scenario.NZDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the NZD or the USD.
