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 price action looked very dead right now, with the Euro more in the spotlight. The action was still generally bullish but unpredictable as the fight over the terms of Brexit continues with no resolution.

I had no directional bias on this pair and awaited political developments.

The Pound has strengthened notably over recent hours, probably forming new higher support at 1.3094. What has caused this change is a shift in power in favour of forced trying to stop Brexit in the U.K. as the opposition Labour Party moves towards supporting a rerun of the 2016 referendum aimed at overturning the result and a group of Conservative government ministers threaten to resign. Additionally, the new anti-Brexit TIG party is polling strongly in a new opinion poll which has just been released. The U.K. seems to be losing its nerve as it heads towards the negotiation endgame and may well capitulate and even delay or overturn Brexit and this is likely to push the Pound higher.

I would take a bullish bias if the price can trade for a couple of hours above 1.3161 during the first half of the London session.
