AUDUSD: Weakly bullish above 0.6822
Last Thursday’s signals produced an excellent long trade from the bullish pin candlestick which rejected the support level identified at 0.6769 to the pip. It would be wise to make a further exit after a couple of consecutive hourly closes below the support level at 0.6809.

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.\
I wrote last Thursday that there were reasons to be bearish, but it was important to be cautious of longer-term buyers coming in between 0.6800 and 0.6769. Therefore, I wanted to trade short on shorter time frames below 0.6809, but I was also ready to get out or to even take a long trade if there was a convincing bullish bounce later at 0.6769.
This was a perfect call which enabled profit both on the way down and then on the way back up as the price bounced strongly at 0.6769 right to the pip.
Bulls are now trying to get the price above 0.6822. If the price does get established above this price, it will be a bullish sign of another thrust up beginning. There price has room to rise all the way to 0.6862 from there, so I will take a bullish bias later if we get a couple of consecutive hourly closes above 0.6822 later.
Alternatively, if the price gets established below the support at 0.6809, or let’s say instead the round number at 0.6800, without breaking above 0.6822, that would be a bearish sign.There is nothing of high importance due today regarding the USD.
