I wrote Friday that “the USDCHF is closing in on its 2011 trendline. The trendline is at 8015 today. A look at short term wave structure suggests that new lows are around the corner. However, expect the drop to complete 5 waves down from the 8520 high and give way to a major reversal. The rally to 8520 completed a triangle and triangles precede the final move of a trend.” It is possible that a low is in place as the USDCHF has rebounded sharply after testing the 8081 low.
