USD/CHF Technical Analysis: Franc Drops to 5-Month Low

USD/CHF Technical Analysis: Franc Drops to 5-Month Low

Talking Points:

  • USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:0.9770, 0.9712, 0.9641
  • Resistance: 0.9829, 0.9900, 1.0016

The US Dollar is attempting to continue building higher against the Swiss Franc, hitting the highest level in close to five months. Near-term resistance is at 0.9829, the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 76.4% level at 0.9900. Alternatively, a turn back below the 50% Fib at 0.9770 opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% expansion at 0.9712.

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.
