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

I wrote last Thursday that I would avoid trading this pair over the short-term, and that I saw a bullish outcome preceded by relatively strong volatility as Tuesday’s Brexit vote approached. In fact, the price has continued to hold up, as far from believing the scaremongering over a “no deal” Brexit, markets are seeing that Parliament is going to act instead to prevent a “no deal” Brexit by any means necessary, quite possibly by even overthrowing the referendum result of 2016. These outcomes should boost the Pound, which is why even if the Government heavily loses tomorrow’s vote, the Pound is still likely to rise.

Technically the picture is firmly bullish, with key support continuing to hold near 1.2700. I would take a bullish bias if we get a firm bullish bounce at the nearest support level of 1.2708 later today.

GBPUSD

There is nothing of high importance due today concerning the USD. Regarding the GBP, the British Prime Minister has announced she will be making a statement at 3:30pm London time.
