USD/CHF Technical Analysis: Franc in Consolidation Mode

USD/CHF Technical Analysis: Franc in Consolidation Mode

Talking Points:

  • USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.8552, 0.8378, 0.8094
  • Resistance: 0.8836, 0.9040, 0.9269

The US Dollar continues to consolidate against the Swiss Franc having plunged following last week’s surprise SNB decision to abandon the EURCHF floor. Near-term resistance is at 0.8836, the January 20 high, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 0.9040. Alternatively, a turn below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 0.8552 clears the way for a challenge of the 23.6% threshold at 0.8378.

Positioning is inconclusive at this point, with prices offering no clear-cut and actionable signal to initiate a long or short trade. We will continue to remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a compelling opportunity to present itself.
