- USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.8986 (23.6% Fib exp.), 0.8954 (trend line)
- Resistance: 0.9038 (38.2% Fib exp.), 0.9081 (50% Fib exp.)
Swiss Franc technical positioning is little-changed from yesterday, with prices treading water above 0.90 to the US Dollar. A daily close above support-turned-resistance at 0.9038, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, exposes the 50% level at 0.9081. Alternatively, a turn below support at 0.8986, the 23.6% Fib, targets a rising trend line set from mid-December (now at 0.8954).
Yesterday’s price action formed a Doji candle, pointing to indecision below resistance and hinting a move lower may be ahead. Confirmation is absent however, arguing against taking a short position. Meanwhile, taking a shot on the long side looks unattractive from a risk/reward perspective. We will hold off on taking a trade at current levels.
