The US Dollar dropped to the lowest level in over two months against the Swiss Franc, with sellers securing a foothold beneath the 0.93 figure. A daily close below the 50% Fibonacci retracement at 0.9213 exposes the 61.8% level at 0.8997. Alternatively, a turn above 0.9428-90 opens the door for a challenge of the April 23 high at 0.9718.
Prices are too close to support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests that taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
