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 slightly more bullish today, with the U.S. Dollar advancing everywhere, but it seemed likely that this would be better exploited in EUR/USD and GBP/USD than this pair, so I would take no bias here. However, trading this pair long was likely to be better than trading it short now. This was a good and accurate call reflecting what happened. The situation is the same today, but a little less bullish as we see a failure to rise above the parity level and even test the next key resistance at 1.0013.

USDCHF

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