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 yesterday that the best I could say was that the support level at 1.2828 looked very pivotal, so if there was a strong bullish bounce there later, I would take a cautiously bullish bias. There was a strong bounce close to that level, but it was never quite reached. The price then rose from there and at the time of writing has just made a bearish rejection of the nearest resistance level at 1.2923, although the rejection is quite weak.

There should still be some medium-term bearish pressure weighing the price down, but if the price can get established above 1.2923 as the London session gets underway, that would be a mildly bullish sign. It is likely to be today’s pivotal level, but I have no directional bias at this point. There are also data releases on both sides which may push the price around in a surprising way which does not respect technical levels.
