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 it looked as if 0.7140 would be the pivotal level, but there was little else to go by. However, there was definitely a medium-term bearish trend, so overall short trades were likely to produce more profit than long trades. The price did rise after overcoming 0.7140 yesterday, but then fell very strongly during the Asian session, and that fall is continuing even at the time of writing. The downwards movement has invalidated the former support level at 0.7100 and it looks as if the bearish momentum will now carry the price down to 0.7075, the next support level. I have a bearish bias until that level is reached, as long as the price continues to make new lows.

AUDUSD
