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 yesterday that I saw a long trade at 0.6814 as the best potential opportunity, as there is a very weak medium-term uptrend. However, I thought that there were likely to be better opportunities elsewhere.

There has been little change to the technical picture over the past day, but the price has moved down to test the support level at 0.6814. So, we may see this bullish bounce still either here or at the support level just below that at 0.6803. Such a bounce could be traded long, but it looks increasingly likely that we will see a breakdown, so any long trade here should be monitored carefully on short time frames.

I think it will be best to not trade this currency pair today.AUDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the USD or the AUD.
