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 last Thursday that I continued to see this pair as likely to go nowhere and not looking like worth trading. However, I did say that a break below 0.9904 was potentially interesting as the possible start of a stronger bearish movement down to the 0.9850 area, and this did happen later that day. The price has risen from 0.9850 with some strength, topping so far just a little short of the resistance level at 0.9961, which is likely to be the pivotal level today. A sustained break above that level would be a bullish sign, but I would take a bearish bias if there was a strong bearish rejection of that level later, especially if it happens early in the London session. There is no trend and the price is very range-bound, making reversals at key levels in this pair attractive potential trades.

USDCHF

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