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 price was in the middle of a zone and looked as if it were going nowhere, so it would probably be wise to avoid trading this currency pair. This was a good call as the movement was quite random. The picture is more bearish now, with the chart below dominated by a short-term bearish trend line. As the price has sold off from an area above parity (1.0000) which has acted as long-term resistance, the best potential is likely to be on the short side now. A good short trade is unlikely to set up today, but it might be that we get another touch of the trend line which could provide a low-risk opportunity to enter. I would be bearish today at a reversal at the trend line or at 1.0069.USDCHF

There is nothing important due today concerning either the CHF or the USD.
