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 action here was likely to closely mirror the EUR/USD currency pair, where the Euro was weakly bullish above 1.1121. If the EUR/USD had gotten established above that level, I would expect the price here to continue to fall also.

This was a good call, as it reflects what happened. The Euro is the strongest major currency now and the USD has weakened, so we can expect the price here to be more likely to fall than to rise over today.

For this reason, I would be prepared to take a bearish bias if we get a bearish reversal from any of the resistance levels which I have identified above. However, there is an inflective point below the current price at 0.9840, so the price may struggle to get any lower than 0.9850.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the CHF or the USD.
