Swissy at Range Resistance
The markets seem to be trading in wide ranges lately. When there is a lack of clear strong trends, look trading opportunities on the pairs that tend to range.
The CHFJPY has been in a horizontal range for the past 90 days. The range high is 88 and the range low is 85. Additionally, a long term resistance line is meeting at the 88 level providing a confluence of resistance on the pair.
The Trading Opportunity
At the end of today, prices were successful in touching 88.00. Since the average daily range of the daily candles is 80 pips, entering a short trade with a stop near 88.80 is the trading plan. Look to take profits at twice the distance to the stop. This provides us with at least a 1 : 2 risk to reward ratio. That means we would place the Take Profit level near 86.30.
