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 had become more bearish but less so than the AUD/USD currency pair. Either long or short trades from rejections of the nearest key levels were likely to be just as good as one another. I again took no directional bias today and thought we will see more action in the AUD/USD currency pair. This was a good plan and worked out OK as the UAD/USD was much more active than this currency pair.

The chart looks very slightly bullish. A sustained break above 0.6900 later after the FOMC release would probably be a bullish sign, as the price has plenty of room to rise before meeting the next resistance which is confluent at the major round number psychological level of 0.7000.
