- Support:0.9293, 0.9139, 0.9015
- Resistance: 0.9388, 0.9541, 0.9646
The US Dollar is digesting losses having fallen against the Swiss Franc as expected after putting in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 0.9293, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 0.9139. Alternatively, a move above the 14.6% Fib at 0.9388 opens the door for a challenge of trend line support-turned-resistance at 0.9541.
The available trading range is too narrow to justify entering a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now, waiting for price action to offer a more compelling opportunity down the road.
