Talking Points:

  • USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.9554, 0.9391, 0.9259
  • Resistance:0.9654, 0.9707, 0.9817

The US Dollar turned lower against the Swiss Franc as expected having found resistance near the 0.9800 figure. Near-term support is at 0.9554, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 0.9391. Alternatively, a turn above the 14.6% Fib at 0.9654 opens the door for a challenge of wedge floor support-turned-resistance at 0.9707.

While entering short is compelling from a purely technical perspective, we will tactically opt to stand aside. Our long-term outlook calls for a broadly stronger US Dollar against its key counterparts, painting the current decline as a corrective pullback. With that in mind, we will look to on-coming weakness as an chance to get long at more attractive levels rather than a selling opportunity.
