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.

GBP/USD Analysis

Yesterday, I wrote that although I had no directional bias, I saw the Pound as weaker against the U.S. Dollar than other major currencies such as the Japanese Yen and the Euro. Everything moved up against the U.S. Dollar yesterday, including the British Pound, but the price below justifies this view because the bullishness here is relatively muted. The price is still above the psychologically important 1.4000 level, but only barely. There is a support level at 1.3981, but it doesn’t look strong and I do not have a lot of confidence that it will hold. If the Dollar comes back today, the price should move down from here quite easily. For this reason, I again have no directional bias here, despite the long-term bullish trend. This pair will probably be best used today as a short trade if the U.S. Dollar comes back, as it would probably move further against the Pound than against most other currencies.
