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.

EUR/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that I had no confidence that the bearish move would carry through despite the clear medium-term bearish trend, partly because we were in an area of long-term support and a very pivotal level at 1.1257, even though we just had a 50-day low close.

For these reasons, I was prepared to get bearish at a rejection of 1.1315 or bullish at a strong rejection of 1.1257.

This was a good call as the level at 1.1257 was missed by only half a pip or so and it gave a very strong bullish bounce.

The picture now is mixed: medium-term bearish trend, but a strong rejection of the bottom of a multi-week range. This suggests the price is quite likely to rise further, but it will be slow and will be a struggle, so trading this pair is likely to be difficult over the short-term.

EURUSD

There is nothing of high importance due today regarding the EUR. Concerning the USD, there will be a release of CPI data at 1:30pm London time.
