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.

USD/JPY Analysis

I wrote yesterday that the price was in a wide medium-term bearish channel, yet it remained difficult to forecast any larger movements in this pair, as action was quite congested. I did expect the support at 110.80 to be strong if it is reached, and I was correct about that. The technical picture today is unchanged, the price remains in a bearish channel, and the support at 110.80 is still valid. The most that can be said now is that at the time of writing, there is short-term bullish momentum, with the Yen falling faster than any other currency, and that a break above the support trend line currently sitting at about 111.40 would be a bullish sign.

USDJPY

There is nothing important due today concerning the JPY. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of PPI data at 1:30pm London time.
