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 there was little to say, except there were no obvious resistance levels anywhere nearby, and we were likely to reach the support level at 0.7117 first. The reaction there would probably give us a clue as to what is in store next. This wasn’t a good call although it did not cause any trouble. The price rose a little as the USD weakened. There is a new possible resistance level at 0.7177 which I have to note but it looks relatively unreliable. There is a long-term range with wide swings, meaning you can try to trade reversals from extremes, but it is all quite unpredictable. Any good trading opportunities that might come by today will probably not be in this currency pair.
