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 the price would move down to test these lows just below 0.7090 and may well fall further. I thought the level at 0.7070 will be the important pivotal level of the day, but I had no directional bias here now. I was almost right, as the price got a little further than 0.7070 before pivoting upwards to rise higher quite firmly.

The price is short-term bullish but is well within a wide level between support and resistance, while still being in a weak long-term bearish trend. This makes trading this currency pair very challenging, and to complicate things even more we have major releases due during the New York and early Asian sessions which could send the price anywhere, so it is probably best to stand aside until after these releases come out.
