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 price is now consolidating between 1.0025 and 0.9965 with bulls and bears both looking evenly matched. I thought that it was likely both levels and probably also the bearish trend line would hold over the course of the day, and I was correct.

The Dollar is strong and European currencies are generally weak, so the picture is perhaps a little more bullish, so a test of the resistance at 1.0025 is quite likely to happen later today. If the price can get established above that level, it would be a bearish sign.

I have no directional bias on this currency pair today.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the CHF or the USD.
