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 traders would be well-advised to watch how the pair behaved at or near 0.6677 closely after the RBA release. This was a good call as the price got extremely close to that level before turning bullish and rising upon the RBA release, and continued to establish higher support at 0.6706. The price may have put in a long-term bottom near these historic lows.

The longer support levels can hold, the greater the chances will be that we have just seen a major bullish reversal. The chances are still against it, but the payoff could be very big if we do not revisit the recent low.

The picture will look much more bullish, and I would take a bullish bias, if the price can get above 0.6750 later today.AUDUSDRegarding the AUD, the Governor of the RBA will be giving a minor speech at 1:30am London time. There is nothing of high importance due today concerning the USD.
