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.

EUR/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that I would be prepared to take a bearish bias if we had gotten a firm bearish rejection of 1.0961 from 9am London time. The price did get back to that level during the New York session, but there was no bearish price action to justify a short trade entry there.

The daily chart saw a daily pin bar candlestick form, suggesting a bullish reversal, or at least a significant bullish retracement into the long-term bearish trend, is on the cards, with the price seeming to have gotten established above the support level at 1.0959.

I would take a bearish bias if we get a further retracement to 1.1030 which then fails and makes a bearish price action reversal, in line with the long-term trend.EURUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the EUR or the USD.
