What you are looking at trading is not just price action but also statistcal probablity. While this is a valid trading methodology like many others out there it also has its downside.
If you are looking for a methodology or trading concept that uses less discretion and is more mechanical I suggest you look at something like "The 5 Minute Forex Momo Trade".
This strategy is from Kathy Lien and Boris Schlossberg and available for everybody.
While it is presented on the 5 min chart it can be adapted to higher time frames.
It's just an idea since you are looking for some direction.
