Analysis: EUR/CHF Range Developing?

Analysis: EUR/CHF Range Developing?

Kristian Kerr, Sr. Currency Strategist

Since the Swiss National Bank aggressively started intervening in EUR/CHF about a year and a half ago it has gone from being one of our favorite crossrates to trade to one of our least. The collapse in volatility since the SNB entered the picture is a major reason why. Despite this tepid volatility, the cross does from time to time provide some compelling risk to reward trade setups - especially when one is looking to incorporate range trading strategies.

A low volatility environment is really a range trader’s best friend as a range is much more likely to hold in that sort of regime. It looks to us like a broad range might be developing in EUR/CHF. In late February the cross found support at a convergence of the 78.6% retracement of the September to January advance and the 4th Gann square root progression from the year-to-date high in the 1.2115/20 area before recovering aggressively to almost 1.2400 by early March. Earlier this week the cross found support again near this same Gann/Fibonacci area. We like going long near 1.2180 for a move back towards the early March highs.
