  • Place the stop loss 1 pip above the local swing high.

  • Adjust the stop loss to break even once the trade is 20 pips in profit.

  • Take off 50% of the position as profit when the price reaches 20 pips in profit and leave the remainder of the position to run.

Long Trade Ideas

  • Place the stop loss 1 pip below the local swing low.

  • Adjust the stop loss to break even once the trade is 20 pips in profit.

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 as a major SNB release was due there could be an opportunity here to fade any post-release spike which peaks at either key resistance or support, as this currency pair was in a long-term price consolidation. However, this approach did not give an opportunity.

The price is now ranging on every time frame and is right in the middle of an obvious consolidation zone. This suggests that it is best to leave this pair alone today, although there could be an opportunity to fade any move to either extreme of the price chart below, such as 0.9958 or 0.9853.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the CHF or the USD.
