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 price has not yet even managed to touch the very strong support level I am expecting at the psychologically important round number of 0.9500. The resistance at the next round number above at 0.9600 also remains. Recent hours have seen a small, mild bullish retracement that tells us little. It is generally a good idea to trade reversals at round numbers with this currency pair generally, and this is the scenario that is worth waiting for here. A bullish reversal at 0.9500 could be an excellent long-term long trade entry, despite the bearish trend in the U.S. Dollar.

USDCHF

There is nothing due today concerning the CHF. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of Unemployment Claims data at 1:30pm London time.
