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 as the bullishness did not look very strong or convincing, so I saw rejections of any of the key levels as potentially good trades in either direction if the rejection is convincing. This was a good call as the price was unable to get beyond any of the key levels and remain there.

The picture now is very slightly bullish as the support at 1.1325 is holding at the time of writing. If it continues to hold as the London session gets underway then we are quite likely to see the price continue upwards and perhaps reach 1.1381. However, there is a lot of resistance to break between there and 1.1400 before the price can move significantly higher.
