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 Monday that if the price broke firmly above 0.9961 and traded there for a couple of hours, it would be a bullish sign and reasonable to take a bullish bias, but the parity level at 1.0000 was quite likely to make itself felt and prevent much more of a rise over the short term. This was a good forecast and it reflects exactly what happened, with the price now consolidating slightly bullishly just above the new flipped resistance to support level at 0.9961.

It is reasonably to take a very slightly bullish bias as long as the price holds above 0.9961 but again, the price is quite likely to be held down by the parity level at 1.0000 over the short term.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the USD or the CHF.
