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 both the AUD and the USD were relatively weak currencies, so I took no directional bias and saw the best approach as likely to be scalping bounces from any support or resistance level after the New York open.

This wasn’t a bad call as all the key levels have held, in fact none of them have been reached yet at the time of writing.

The AUD is still weak, while the USD is regaining some of the ground it lost yesterday. This suggests that the support level at 0.6814 is quite likely to be hit later, which might give a chance for a long trade.

I would avoid trading this pair today and see better opportunities elsewhere for the time being.AUDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the AUD or the USD.
