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 I had no directional bias and overall saw the movement here as very difficult to predict and quite choppy, with bulls and bears very evenly balanced. For this reason, I wanted to continue to avoid trading this pair for the time being.

The picture is now very slightly more bullish, with the price rising relatively firmly from new support at 1.0053. We are now into the fourth day where it looks as if the dominant movement will be bullish.

I would take a bullish bias if we got a retracement to 1.0052 and a firm bullish bounce there later, Overall, I would be very cautious trading this currency pair right now due to the strong lack of any real trend.USDCHFThere is nothing important due today concerning the CHF. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of Preliminary GDP data at 1:30pm London time.
