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 there was no doubt that we had a medium-term bullish trend now in this pair, although to get very bullish we really needed to see the price above 1.0110 first. I said that if the price could get established above 1.0058 during the London session and trade there for a couple of hours, I would take a bullish bias.

This was an OK call as the price never did break above 1.0058 so it was enough to stay out of trouble. Instead we have had a bullish consolidation below that level. The technical outlook is essentially unchanged from yesterday, a couple of hours above 1.0058 would still be a good bullish sign. Bulls can also look to whether the support at 1.0025 holds. The problem is that the ECB is giving its monthly input later and this can have a strong knock on highly correlated currencies such as the CHF, so at the time of that release and press conference the price can go anywhere.

Overall, I feel more comfortable taking long trades in this pair than short trades.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the CHF or the USD.
