The US Dollar may be preparing to turn lower against the Swiss Franc after producing a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. A daily close below resistance-turned-support at 0.9343, February 2 low, exposes the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 0.9076. Alternatively, a turn above the 61.8% Fib retracement at 0.9498 opens the door for a test of the 76.4% threshold at 0.9781.
Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices in close proximity to support. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
