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 I had no directional bias generally, but I would be bullish if there was a strong reversal at either of the nearby support levels later, especially at the level of 0.9939. In fact, there was a strong bullish reversal just a few pips below that level, so the precision was wrong, but the general idea was right.

The U.S. Dollar is making a comeback to some extent, but this pair is outside the market’s focus, and it may be hard for the price to break much further above the parity level, so there could be limited upside. The most likely scenario is that the price will range 0.9939 and 1.0008 over the short-term, so a short trade off a bearish reversal at resistance looks like being the best possible trade which might set up here. Beyond that, I have no directional bias here today.

USDCHF

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