Yesterday’s signals produced a short trade from the break of the bearish engulfing candlestick which rejected the bearish trend line (shown in the price chart below) late in the Asian session. The trade would still be open at present and its outcome uncertain as there is some intraday momentum against the Dollar.

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.
I wrote yesterday that I expected that the action was likely to be messy and hard to predict, so day traders might be wise to stand aside for the time being. I was wrong to some extent, the price has in fact made a move up, but has rejected the bearish trend line which I drew in the chart. The momentum seems relatively bullish, but this would have to be confirmed by a decisive break above the trend line. If the price does get established above there, it has space to rise higher as there are no obvious strong resistance levels until the big round number at $10,000 is reached. I have a bearish bias below the trend line, and a bullish bias above it.
