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 had a bearish bias yesterday, but the price quickly turned around and rose strongly, invalidating resistance, before falling back again. I did note that the short-term outlook did not seem to be bearish. Although the long-term picture still suggests a downwards move is most likely, the price action looks extremely indecisive, and it is very difficult to predict the movement here. The best that can be said is that as the price approached the bearish trend line shown in the price chart below and the confluent parity level of 1.0000, it is more likely to make a bearish turn.

There is nothing due today concerning either the CHF or the USD.
