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 there should still be some medium-term bearish pressure weighing the price down, but if the price could get established above 1.2923 as the London session got underway, that would be a mildly bullish sign. It was likely to be the day’s pivotal level. That wasn’t a bad call as the price spiked above it but immediately reversed back below, and then continued to move down, o the level was pivotal.

The medium-term bearish trend continues, and the Pound is now looking weaker than the Euro, which is a bearish sign for this pair. I see the support at 1.2828 as likely to be the pivotal level today and would take a bearish bias if the price trades below it for a couple of hours.
