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 if the price could get above the confluence of resistance which started at about 0.9850 and reach to 0.9865, it would probably have enough of a pop to get higher still, perhaps to the 0.9900 area. However, I did think that 0.9850 would probably hold.

The price did get above the resistance but has not “popped” bullishly very much so far, although the price did reach to within 10 pips of 0.9900.

The price now is firmly within both its long and short-term ranges. As such, I have no directional bias, and think that any opportunities in the Forex market today are highly likely to arise in other currency pairs. The only valid approach I see here now is scalping off reversals at key levels for just a few pips of profit.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the CHF or the USD.
