Long Trades   

  • Long entry following a bullish price action reversal upon the next touch of 1.0048, 1.0035, or 1.0014.
  • Put the stop loss 1 pip below the local swing low.

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 wrote last Thursday that I had no short-term directional bias, but I still thought the greater opportunity for a long-term price movement was downwards as we were selling off from an area above parity (1.0000). In fact, the price has risen, and the technical picture now looks much more bullish, as we have a cluster of nearby support above the big round number at 1.0000 and the price is trading at a new 1-year high price. However, this pair often reverses its momentum or trend, so it is important to be careful. For this reason, I think a short trade off a bearish reversal at 1.0111 could be an interesting trade if it sets up later. Generally, I have no directional bias, but somewhat higher prices look likely to be reached at some time later today.

USDCHF

There is nothing important due today concerning either the CHF or the USD. It is a public holiday today in the U.S.A.
