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 a sustained break above 1.1344 would be a bullish sign, but reversals at either 1.1344 or 1.1298 could be good trades – I had no directional bias, but I thought that long trades had a better probability than short trades overall.

This was a good call as the sustained break above 1.1344 did happen and has led to generally higher prices (although not by much) and there is new higher stairstep support at 1.1327. The picture is more bullish today, but bulls should be cautious that there is an unbroken swing high above the current price at 1.1360.
