Long Trade

 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 there was very little life in this pair which was basically just consolidating. I thought it was best avoided. Although there was some movement, the price essentially stuck to its medium-term range, so this was overall a good call.

There may be an early short trade opportunity here, with the price breaking below the former resistance at 0.9935 which at the time of writing appears to be holding. If taken, conservative profits would make sense. The U.S. Dollar is generally weak following yesterday’s FOMC, but there are probably currencies other than the Swiss Franc which are going to make better progress against it.

USDCHF

There is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the CHF or the USD.
