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 U.S. Dollar was generally weak following yesterday’s FOMC, but there were probably currencies other than the Swiss Franc which were going to make better progress against it. This was a good call as despite holding below the resistance at 0.9935, the price failed to fall much further before turning around.

The Dollar is generally stronger everywhere, and the key pivotal level which may now act as new support is shown at 0.9957 in the chart below. However, due to the absence of trending behaviour, I see the opportunities as at the extreme price lives near parity (1.0000) and the lower round number (0.9900) if any reversals happen there. I doubt either of these areas will be reached today though.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the CHF or the USD.
