- Support:0.9279, 0.9139, 0.9015
- Resistance: 0.9389, 0.9544, 0.9657
The US Dollar moved lower against the Swiss Franc as expected after putting in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Near-term trend line support is at 0.9279, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 0.9139. Alternatively, a turn above a downward-sloping barrier at 0.9389 opens the door for a challenge of support-turned-resistance at 0.9544.
Positioning is inconclusive at this point, with prices offering no clear-cut and actionable signal to initiate a long or short trade. We will continue to remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a compelling opportunity to present itself.
