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

I had thought the anticipated support level at 0.9540 would hold yesterday, although the price in fact managed to get about 20 pips below this level before turning around and rising again. This is enough to invalidate the level which has been removed from the chart, leaving the next key support at the big psychological level of 0.9500 which could provide an excellent, long-term long trade entry. The next round number above at 0.9600 also looks attractive for a short trade.USDCHF

There is nothing due today concerning the CHF. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of Building Permits data at 1:30pm London time, followed by Crude Oil Inventories at 3:30pm.
