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 last Thursday that this currency pair would be one of the currency pairs worth keeping an eye on as long as the market continues to be so driven by risk-on vs. risk-off considerations. This was a good call, however I also thought that the level at 0.9793 would be very pivotal and it was not.

This pair was falling strongly to new long-term lows on risk-off sentiment and is now rebounding as risk sentiment has improved considerably over recent days. The SNB seem to not be intervening much as far as I can tell, so I think that as long as risk sentiment continues to recover and the U.S. stock market continues to advance to new all-time highs, the price will continue to advance.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding the CHF. Concerning the USD, there will be a release of ISM Manufacturing PMI data at 3pm London time.
