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 last Thursday that there was no trend, just a long term, wide-swinging range and a messy chart, so the best approach would probably be to trade reversals at price extremes such as the support at 0.6790 if there is another good bullish bounce there. I was almost correct, as there was a strong and sharp bullish reversal about 30 pips below that level: the extreme was rejected.

The picture now is more bullish as we have seen a strong rise in the price, with the U.S. Dollar currently acting as the weakest currency generally, which suggests still higher prices. However, we are currently close to a major resistance level which is also very confluent with a round number, at 0.6902. I would not want to enter a short trade there until the price had lost its bullish momentum over several hours at least.
