Talking Points:

  • USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Longat 0.9452
  • Support: 0.9677, 0.9556, 0.9359
  • Resistance:0.9776, 0.9874, 0.9996

The US Dollar resumed its advance against the Swiss Franc in earnest, with prices soaring to the highest level in sixteen months. A daily close above the 50% Fibonacci expansion at 0.9776 exposes the 61.8% level at 0.9874. Alternatively, a reversal below the 0.9689-0.9736 area marked by the October 6 high and the 38.2% Fib clears the way for a test of 0.9556, the intersection of the 23.6% expansion and a rising trend line set from mid-October.

We entered long USDCHF at 0.9452 and subsequently booked profit on half of the position. The remainder of the trade is open to capture any further upside momentum with a stop-loss trailed to breakeven (0.9452).
