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.
I wrote yesterday that the odds would be with the bulls at a bottom just above 0.6800 and below that it would be likely to drift down to at least the 0.6750 area. I was wrong enough for this to hurt: there was a bottom, but it was just below 0.6800 and we have seen a bullish recovery from there.
There is no direction here on any time frame except the shortest. This indicates that the best opportunities which could arise here in this pair are fast reversals on short time frames at the extremes of price at 0.6708 and 0.6902. It is a very similar situation to the highly correlated AUD/USD currency pair.There is nothing of high importance due today regarding the NZD.
Concerning the USD, there will be releases of Retail Sales and PPI data at 1:30pm London time.
