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.

USD/CHF Analysis

The further weakening in the U.S. Dollar has seen the price break down below its slightly bullish channel, and the round number at 0.6800 has clearly been flipped from acting as support to become probable resistance. This gives a more bearish outlook to this currency pair, but it should be noted that the CHF is not, relatively, one of the strongest currencies. Furthermore, the support at and above the psychologically key 0.9500 level has been very strong in the recent past, so could continue to act as a formidable barrier preventing a more prolonged downwards movement.USDCHF
