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 Thursday that the price seemed to be in between levels and did not look likely to make firm, strong movements in either direction, so there were likely to be better opportunities elsewhere. This was a good call.

There is little change to that situation, the action has flattened out considerably and is quite choppy. There are likely to be better opportunities elsewhere.

The picture is slightly more bearish, with a new lower resistance level at 0.9935 which might produce a profitable short trade for a conservative profit target.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the USD or the CHF.
