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 a break below the lower trend line was likely to trigger a further move down to 0.9744, where we may see a healthy bullish bounce triggering a long trade entry.

I was watching out for a move down to 0.9744 and then waiting to see what happened if the price got there.

This was a good call as there was a break below the trend line followed by a further move down to 0.9744 and below. There was no bullish bounce at 0.9744 and this level has been invalidated.

We now have a yet more bearish picture, with the U.S. Dollar generally on the defensive and the Swiss Franc rising against it by default.

I would take a bearish bias if the price retraced to the 0.9800 level and failed to break above the area and then made a strong bearish reversal.

A break below 0.9700 today would be a very bearish sign.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning the CHF. Regarding the USD, the Chair of the Federal Reserve will be giving a minor speech at 5pm London time.
