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

I wrote yesterday that this pair would continue to see volatility and would be strongly affected by British political developments. I thought that the government would probably survive tonight’s no confidence vote (it did) and that the price should rise. It held up but did not rise really.

The Forex market is very quiet generally. It seems as if the resistance at 1.2918 is not going to be breached today, and the short-term price action right now is suggesting we are going to see lower prices today. I have no directional bias here at present, but it is still likely that we will see more movement / volatility here than anywhere else today.GBPUSDThere is nothing important due regarding either the USD or the GBP.
