- USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.8757, 0.8582, 0.8299
- Resistance: 0.9040, 0.9269, 0.9498
The US Dollar continued its recovery against the Swiss Franc, with prices reclaiming a foothold above the 0.90 figure. Near-term resistance is at 0.9040, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 0.9269. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 0.8757 clears the way for a challenge of the 14.6% retracement at 0.8582.
Prices are too close to resistance to justify entering long from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests that taking up the short side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
