The US Dollar turned lower against the Swiss Franc as expected after producing a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. Near-term support is in the 0.9518-30 area, marked by a rising trend line and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 0.9432. Alternatively, a turn above the 14.6% Fib at 0.9591 opens the door for a challenge of the 0.9677-89 zone bracketed by the 100% Fib expansion and the October 6 high.
We bought USDCHF at 0.9068 and have since taken profit on half of our exposure. The remainder of the trade is open to capture any further upside momentum. The stop-loss is now at 0.9114, our initial objective.
