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 level at 0.9678 acted as good resistance, but the short-term trend is still bullish, with the price being supported by a trend line. Another movement up to 0.9678 and failure from a retest, plus a break of the bullish trend line, could be another good short trade entry. Note the longer-term bearish trend line connecting the swing highs, which suggests a continuation of the downwards movement once this short-term bullish trend breaks.USDCHF
