USD/CHF Forex Signal

Yesterday’s signals produced a profitable long trade following the bullish candlestick which rejected the support level at 0.9918, which so far has given about 30 pips of profit. It may be wise to take profit if the resistance level at 0.9958 is not broken very soon.

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 that the bearish momentum seemed to be slowing, so although short trades still looked more attractive, a bullish reversal at any of the nearby support levels could also be an attractive trade. This was a good call as the bullish bounce at the nearest support produced a profitable long trade. The technical picture now looks more likely to see ranging conditions, as the bears seems to have run out of momentum, which is ideal for entering trades after firm reversals at either support or resistance. I take no directional bias today.USDCHF

There is nothing important due today concerning the CHF. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of Core Durable Goods Orders at 1:30pm London time.
