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 I would do nothing here unless and until we got a bearish break below the support level at 0.9894, and I would then be prepared to take a bearish bias, as the price has a lot of room to fall below that price.

This has turned out to be a good call, as at the time of writing the price is making a strong break below that level and appears to have enough room to fall all the way to the nearest support at 0.9820.

As long as the short-term price action is bearish and the price is breaking to new lower lows, I will take a short-term bearish bias here. It should be worth being aware of the trend line at 0.9860 which may provide support before 0.9820 is reached.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding the CHF. Concerning the USD, there will be a release of PPI data at 1:30pm London time, followed by testimony by the Chair of the Federal Reserve before Congress at 3pm.
