Talking Points:

  • USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Long at 0.9068
  • Support:0.9295, 0.9249, 0.9207
  • Resistance: 0.9369, 0.9429, 0.9489

The US Dollar paused to digest gains after probing a 12-month high having rallied as expected following the appearance of a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 0.9369, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 0.9429. Alternatively, a reversal back belowthe 23.6% Fib at 0.9295 clears the way for a challenge of the14.6% expansionat 0.9249.

We entered long USDCHF at 0.9068 and have since taken profit on half of our exposure. The rest remains open to capture any further upside momentum with a stop-loss at 0.9114, our initial objective.
