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 last Thursday that the recent break above 0.6800 was technically significant, i.e. significantly bullish. I was looking to take a bullish bias if we get any bullish bounces at a key support level following a bearish pull-back. This was a good call insofar as the price has continued to rise, and is still rising, although unfortunately we have not yet had a good pull back to a key support level over recent days.

The signs are still bullish, and at the time of writing it even looks as though the resistance level at 0.6868 is breaking, which would be another bullish sign if it completes. However, bulls should be aware that the price now is approaching a key pivotal zone which begins above 0.6868, so it may be time for a pause in the bullish movement.

I would still take a bullish bias if we get a pull back and bullish bounce at 0.6830.AUDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the AUD or the USD.
