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 I took no directional bias and saw a long from 0.9873 or a short from 0.9931 as equally valid trades due to any clear momentum. This was enough to keep out of trouble and the level at 0.9931 did at least turn out to be a pivotal point.

The picture now is much more bullish, as we have been seeing a steady move up.

The price has reached a very interesting point close to the parity level at 1.0000 which has held as resistance over several months. This means that there could be a great opportunity for a medium or long-term short trade at any bearish reversal above 1.0000, especially at 1.0013 or 1.0033.

I would be prepared to take a bearish bias at any solid bearish reversal at either of the nearby resistance levels.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the CHF or the USD.
