The US Dollar remains in consolidation mode as prices revisit the top of their two-month range near the 0.95 figure against the Swiss Franc. A daily close above the 0.9502-57 area (23.6% Fibonacci expansion, trend line) exposes the 38.2% level at 0.9769. Alternatively, a turn below trend line support at 0.9188 clears the way for a test of the May 7 low at 0.9071.
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.
