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 due to the lack of any real trend, I would take no directional bias unless the RBA release later was seen as more bullish than expected. Just the opposite happened, with the RBA Minutes including wording which pointed to “significant uncertainties” in the Australian economic outlook, which caused the AUD to fall a little further against a resurgent U.S. Dollar. This created a new lower resistance level at 0.7118 but we are also seeing a possible beginning of higher support at 0.7108 so overall it is an extremely evenly balanced picture between the bulls and bears with no real trend.

Overall, this pair is clearly best avoided today, although it may be possible to fade a sudden spike to 0.7085.
