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 this pair was simply not attractive to trade now, because there are no obviously and clear levels now for a long way in either direction. We only had a weak, short-term bullish channel holding up the price. There has been absolutely no change to this technical situation, a weak bullish channelling very far from any key support or resistance. I have no directional bias and think there are likely to be better opportunities in other currency pairs.
