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 line of least resistance is downwards, and I thought that the day was most likely to be a down day, and I would take a bearish bias if there were a healthy rejection of either of the nearby resistance levels.

I was right about the overall direction over the day, as the price is now lower, and looks set to fall further. So, I think today is likely to be a down day. I would take a bearish bias if we get a bearish reversal at either of the nearby resistance levels. The price has been refusing to move higher for several days now and it looks like the bearish turn is finally happening.

USD/CHF Signal

There is nothing important due today concerning either the CHF or the USD.
