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.

USD/JPY Analysis

I wrote yesterday that the situation was a consolidation between 105.86 and 106.73 with both levels looking strong and likely to hold.

I was looking to fade any of the three key levels if there was a valid reversal at any of them.

This was a good call as it accurate predicted the bounce at 105.86 and produced a long trade entry from there which was mildly profitable.

The consolidation persists and is like to continue today, but the technical picture will begin to look more bullish if the support level at 106.09 can hold today.USDJPYThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the JPY or the USD.
