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 bulls and bears seemed evenly balanced, so the key levels were likely to hold. If the price could trade below 1.0028 for a couple of hours, that would probably be a bearish sign, but overall, I thought there will be little movement in this currency pair today. This was a fairly good call, as the pivotal level was very close to 1.0028 and provided the low of the day.

The technical picture is unchanged, I just adjusted the nearest support level down a little. Key levels look like holding and the price seems to be going nowhere, although there is a hint of the beginning of a more bearish trend so a short trade from a firm rejection of the resistance at 1.0058 could be an interesting opportunity especially if it happens early in the London session – I would take a bearish bias if that sets up.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the CHF or the USD.
