  • Also, here is the schedule of FOMC meetings from now through the end of 2022. If the Fed doesn't signal taper today, next scheduled time is Nov 2nd and 'quarterly' event time is Dec 14th. Will taper be easier w/ one or two more high CPI updates? https://t.co/XFrwo24xbD
  • Here is my FOMC scenario table going into the rate decision. While a delay in the taper call seems feasible with the market wobble, there will always be wobbles before and the existential threat of a mkt tantrum. Always a hostage? https://t.co/MIDk28lQBS

USD/CHF Technical Analysis – Rally Stalls Above 0.88 Figure

Talking Points:

  • USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.8802 (23.6% Fib exp.), 0.8742 (Apr 11 low)
  • Resistance: 0.8839 (38.2% Fib exp.), 0.8869 (61.8% Fib exp.)

The US Dollar rebound against the Swiss Franc has paused to consolidate after prices found support above the 0.87 figure. Near-term resistance is at 0.8839, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that targeting 50% level at 0.8869. Alternatively, a turn back below the 23.6% Fib at 0.8802 exposes the April 11 lowat 0.8742.

Prices are trading too close to relevant resistance to make a long trade attractive from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a bearish reversal signal argues against taking up the short side. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for an actionable opportunity to present itself.
