- USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.0119, 1.0059, 0.9962
- Resistance: 1.0185, 1.0239, 1.0293
The US Dollar may turn lower against the Swiss Franc after prices put in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 1.0119, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 1.0059. Alternatively, a reversal above the 138.2% Fib at 1.0185 clears the way for a challenge of the 150% expansion at 1.0239.
Prices are too close to support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests that taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
