- USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support:0.8908, 0.8869-83, 0.8830
- Resistance: 0.8957, 0.9000, 0.9036
The US Dollar continued to sink against the Swiss Franc, hitting the lowest level in two weeks. Near-term support comes in at 0.8908, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that exposing the 0.8869-83 area marked by a falling trend line set from November 2013 and the 50% level. Alternatively, a reversal back above the 23.6% Fib at 0.8957 on a daily closing basis clears the way for another challenge of the 0.90 figure.
While entering short seems tempting, breaking above the aforementioned falling trend line argues for a broader bullish bias and paints the current pullback as corrective. With that in mind, we will stand aside for now and wait for a buying opportunity to emerge.
