USD/CHF - Trend Identification

Education
OANDA:USDCHF   U.S. Dollar / Swiss Franc
Good Morning Traders. Here is an educational piece on two key things.

Before trading a currency pair, we want to head to at least the daily chart to identify the long term trend on the pair before we scale down to our lower time frames. To identify a trend is simple. For an uptrend, look for higher highs and higher lows.

Here is a clear long term downtrend on UCHF. We can see price is making lower highs and lower lows. This indicates a downtrend.

It is important to zoom out and see highs and lows of markets long term. We've done that here with USD/CHF and we can see that price is now at 6 year lows! Will sellers keep pushing price down further or is this a level where buyers will jump into the market?

Top Tip - You can always switch to a line chart. This makes identifying the trend easier for forex beginners!
