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 situation now looked much more bullish, and I would be comfortable taking a bullish bias if we got a retrace and bounce at any of the support levels nearby. This did not happen, but my noting of the increased bullishness was correct as the price continued to rise and print new higher support at 0.9892. There is quite firm directional movement here, so if the price is still making higher highs after 9am London time, it would be reasonable to take a bullish bias up to 0.9961 and look for entries after pull-backs on shorter-term price charts.USDCHFThere is nothing important due today regarding either the USD or the CHF.
