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.

USD/JPY Analysis

I wrote yesterday that I had a “very weakly bullish” bias. The price has moved up and is now looking more bullish, but is currently testing the major round number at 110.00 which might effectively act as a cap. The action has effectively flipped the area of resistance just above 109.50 to become support, and the price has based there nicely before moving up again. It makes sense to be bullish, although it is quite possible that the level at 110.00 will more or less hold until the U.S. inflation data release is due later. If the number is stronger than expected, the price could really take off and hit 110.50 or even 111.20.

USD/JPY

There is nothing due today concerning the JPY. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of CPI data at 1:30pm London time.
