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 yesterday that the picture was now more bullish, with “stairstep” resistance turned to support at 0.9955 and some room to rise higher to the parity level. I would be bullish if the price trades above 0.9985 after the London open but was not optimistic that the price would rise a great deal higher. This was a good call as the price has moved higher but not by much. The picture is slightly more bullish today, with the U.S. Dollar advancing everywhere, but it seems likely that this will be better exploited in EUR/USD and GBP/USD than this pair, so I would take no bias here today. However, trading this pair long is likely to be better than trading it short now.

USDCHF

There is nothing important due today concerning the CHF. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of CB Consumer Confidence data at 3pm London time.
