The US Dollar is testing monthly highs against the Swiss Franc as buyers attempt to clear a path above the 0.96 figure. A daily close above the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 0.9551exposes the 23.6% level at 0.9662. Alternatively, a turn below trend line support at 0.9437 opens the door for a test of resistance-turned-support at 0.9343, the February 2 high.
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.
