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 the situation was bullish over the short-term, but that we also had resistance levels ahead at the half, quarter and full numbers above the current price. The level at 0.6500 is also a major psychological level so it was likely to be strong resistance.

The price has failed to rise to new highs, instead continuing a bullish consolidation pattern, but there are now signs that this could be a bearish “head & shoulders” formation. Much will now depend upon whether the nearby support levels hold. I would still be prepared to take a bullish bias if we get a firm bounce following a retracement to 0.6406, especially if the price action rejects the round number at 0.6400 at the same time as the horizontal support level just above it.NZDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the NZD or the USD.
