  • Place the stop loss 1 pip above the local swing high.
  • Move the stop loss to break even once the trade is 20 pips in profit.
  • Remove 50% of the position as profit when the price reaches 20 pips in profit and leave the remainder of the position to ride.

Long Trade Ideas

  • Go long following a bullish price action reversal on the H1 time frame immediately upon the next touch of 1.3667 or 1.3621.
  • Place the stop loss 1 pip below the local swing low.
  • Move the stop loss to break even once the trade is 20 pips in profit.

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 last Tuesday that bulls were failing to push the price beyond the key resistance level at 1.3621, which looked pivotal, so the upside may be limited. However, I doubted that we would see a lot of downwards movement, so I thought it wisest to stand aside from trading this currency pair for the day.

This was a good and accurate forecast as the price rose over the day, but not by much.

The technical picture has become much more bullish, as riskier currencies such as the Pound have all strengthened against a weaker U.S. Dollar over the previous day.

The British Pound is one of the relatively strong major currencies. Yesterday it managed to trade above the round number at 1.3700 and briefly hit a new 2.5-year high price, which is a bullish sign.
