Notes: The USDCHF has made an impressive rebound off Fibonacci support after defending the January opening range low on Friday. Although the pair invalidated our setup last week with a break below 9080, a topside breach of this week's opening range high warrants long exposure and our immediate focus remains weighted to the topside while above the 90-handle.

That said, the pair has now come up against interim resistance at 9040/58 which is defined by the 100% extension taken form the advance off last week’s low, the 100-day moving average, trendline resistance and the 61.8% retracement of the decline off the monthly high. A breach above this threshold offers further conviction on our directional bias with such a scenario eyeing subsequent topside resistance targets.

Bottom line: We’ll look to buys dips/breaks of resistance while above 90 with only a break below last week’s close low at 8935 (also the 61.8% retracement) invalidating our broader outlook. Critical longer-term support rests between 8860/88 and if compromised risks substantial declines for the greenback. Note that the daily momentum signature made a clean rebound off the 40-threhsold, suggesting that the recent decline off the monthly highs remains corrective in nature. Follow the progress of this trade setup and more throughout the trading week in DailyFX on Demand.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
