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

The price is close to reaching new 2-year highs, which are very long-term and significant highs. This is a typically a bullish sign, but it is a fact that this pair usually does not respond well to being judged on its directional momentum. Therefore, a major bearish reversal is quite likely to occur in this area – it is sometime to watch out for, at least. It does not look as if it is about to happen, but a strong rejection of 1.0150 might well signal that start of it. I would take a bearish bias here if that scenario plays out later today.
