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 bullish, but a little less bullish as we saw a failure to rise above the parity level and even test the next key resistance at 1.0013. As it happened, everything changed when the Chair of the Fed hinted there would be less rate hikes, we saw everything strengthen against the U.S. Dollar, changing the technical picture somewhat here on this pair. The price has broken below the support at 0.9958 but seems to be holding at 0.9918. This pair is in a ranging condition, so any reversal long or short from a good level is all the same to me and I take no directional bias.

USDCHF

There is nothing important due today concerning the  CHF. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of the FOMC Meeting Minutes at 7pm London time.
