Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT

A close look at the USDCHF rally from the low reveals a 5 wave structure, which may compose the first leg of a larger bull move. Over the next several days, the USDCHF will probably work lower into 8700-8750 before finding a secondary low (wave 2 or B low). 8702 is the 61.8% retracement of the advance from 8551 and 8749 the 50% retracement. 8735 is the 100% extension of the decline from 8945.

Support/Resistance Index (M,W,D) – 0, 0, (1)
