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 the level at 0.6882 had continued to hold and so the picture remained technically bearish. I was prepared to take a bearish bias if we had gotten another bearish reversal at either 0.6882 again or at 0.6909.

This was a good call as the nearest resistance level at 0.6882 held with the high of the day just 1 pip below it, so I was accurate about the direction and about the key level.

The picture remains bearish, as although there is more risk-on sentiment which should help the AUD, the AUD is suffering from relative weakness due to fears of a coming rate cut from the RBA, and the USD is strong everywhere.

The bearish technical situation should last until at least the NFP data is released tomorrow (Friday).

I will take a bearish bias if we get a bearish bounce from 0.6882 later today.AUDUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning the USD. Regarding the AUD, there will be a release of Retail Sales data at 12:30am London time.
