EUR/USD Forex Signal

Yesterday's signals produced a profitable long trade after the bullish pin candlestick rejected the support level at 1.1302, however this gave little more than the minimum 20 pips of profit.

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 we had new higher support just above 1.1300 but it looked somewhat unreliable. I wanted to see the price break above 1.1357 before giving the balance of power to bulls. I did not expect a lot of price movement anyway. This was a fairly good call as the support initially held before breaking down. Apart from adjusting the support downwards to 1.1290, there is little else to say – the price looks very evenly balanced between bulls and bears, and market is quiet and ranging, and this pair is probably best avoided today. I have no directional bias here now.

EURUSD

There is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the EUR or the USD.
