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.

GBP/USD Analysis

It is very difficult to say what is going to happen next here. There is a long-term bearish trend and the downwards swings are bigger than the upwards swings. So far so bearish, but the clear support at 1.3105 is pushing the price up right now. It is too early to tell but we are getting an indication that today might be an up day. In the absence of other day, the major move may come after the news item on the British Pound, but the data will probably need to be a big surprise to have serious impact. I have a very, very weak bullish bias on this pair today.

Concerning the GBP, there will be a release of Construction PMI data at 9:30am London time. There is nothing important due today regarding the USD.
