USD/CHF Technical Analysis: Strongest Close in Nearly 6 Years

USD/CHF Technical Analysis: Strongest Close in Nearly 6 Years

Talking Points:

  • USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.0010, 0.9902, 0.9835
  • Resistance: 1.0118, 1.0185, 1.0239

The US Dollar advanced for a fourth consecutive day against the Swiss Franc, using the strongest close in nearly six years. A daily close above the 123.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1.0118 exposes the 138.2% level at 1.0185. Alternatively, a turn below the 100% Fib at 1.0010 clears the way for a challenge of the 76.4% expansion at 0.9902.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices in close proximity to resistance. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
