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 noted a small zone of support from 1.3888 to 1.3879 and that if it held into the London open, that would suggest that the price will go on to make new highs later today. The level did hold and produced an eventual strong upwards movement as New York came online. This bullish move may have further to run but could be due a deeper pull-back as London opens. There are no key resistance levels for a long way above, but the psychologically important 1.4000 area is close by and might prevent any further short-term rise in the price.

GBPUSD
