USD/CHF Technical Analysis: Sideways Trade Continues

USD/CHF Technical Analysis: Sideways Trade Continues

Talking Points:

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

The US Dollar is digesting losses against the Swiss Franc having moved aggressively lower after the surprise SNB decision to scrap its EURCHF floor. A daily close below the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 0.8552 exposes the 23.6% level at 0.8378. Alternatively, a turn above the January 20 high at 0.8836 opens the door for a test of the 38.2% Fib retracement at 0.9040.

An actionable trade setup is absent at this point, arguing against committing to a directional bias on long or short side. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for a clear-cut trading opportunity to present itself in the days ahead.
