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 saw the technical picture as dominated by a slower, new downwards price channel. I saw the only opportunities here as reversals at 1.0025 and 0.9957 and thought this pair may be worth paying attention to as there was more volatility and cleaner and stronger price swings. I was right about the increasing volatility and looking for reversals, but wrong about the level at 0.9957, with the strong bullish reversal taking place below that number.

The price is now consolidating between 1.0025 and 0.9965 with bulls and bears both looking evenly matched. It is likely both levels and probably also the bearish trend line shown in the price chart below will hold over the course of today, so trading any strong reversals there is a possible strategy, but it looks as if any opportunities in the market today are likely to set up in other currency pairs such as USD/JPY or GBP/USD.
