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 bullishness here was driven more by weakness in the CHF as safe havens sell off than USD strength. I was ready to take a bullish bias if we had gotten 2 consecutive hourly closes above 0.9946.

We got a much more restrained bullishness, but the price has held from a nearby support level which gave a long trade. Although the picture is weakly bullish, it is important to note that the area of resistance just above the current price is strong and has held firm over the medium-term. Therefore, the chance of a bearish reversal there remains high. It is a very good pivotal area and it is highly likely to be pivotal today. If the price can get above 0.9946, I would take a bullish bias upon the second consecutive hourly close above that level during today’s London session.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning the CHF. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of Crude Oil Inventories data at 3:30pm London time.
