- USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.8806 (23.6% Fib ret.), 0.8770 (Wedge top)
- Resistance: 0.8873 (38.2% Fib ret.), 0.8927 (50% Fib ret.)
The US Dollar began to recover against the Swiss Francas expected, seeming completing a Falling Wedge chart formation. Near-term resistance is now at 0.8873, 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that targeting the 50% level at 0.8927. Alternatively, slipping back below the 23.6% Fib at 0.8806 would expose the Wedge top at 0.8770.
An alternate interpretation of current technical positioning leaves open the possibility that a Falling Channel is the dominant pattern in play rather than the Rising Wedge setup. The possibility of such a scenario makes us leery to enter long for the time being and we will continue to wait on the sidelines for greater confirmation to materialize.
