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.

NZD/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that the picture was still relatively bullish, but the price would need to advance soon to confirm that. A long trade from a strong bullish bounce at 0.6873 would look attractive and cause me to take a bullish bias. There was a bounce there, but we have also had a clear bearish bounce at 0.6900, so it looks as if the price is stuck right now and quite evenly balanced. This means it is probably unwise to be in any trades until the price gets out of this range between 0.6873 and 0.6901. However, there is a medium to long-term weak bullish trend, so I would be comfortable taking a bullish bias above 0.6873.
