Talking Points:

- USD/CHF set a fresh four-month high earlier in the month as USD-strength continued into Q4.

- Price action fell back-below a key level last week, and we’re now seeing resistance show around prior support.

While much of the world has been watching Euros, U.S. Dollars and British Pounds, the Swiss Franc has begun to show a series of interesting setups. In USD/CHF, the pair finally broke above resistance at .9770 earlier in the month as USD-strength continued into the open of Q4. Bulls were unable to sustain the top-side break, however, and after prices retraced back below that prior point of resistance, a range had developed over the final few days of the week.

Given the prior proclivity of the pair to stick to range-like, mean-reversion tendencies; combined with the prior support and resistance structure that had set-in, this could become usable for traders forward-looking approaches in USD/CHF.

Continued resistance around the .9770 level opens the door for short-side setups. Traders can look at stops above either of the two recent swing highs, with aggressive stances looking above .9808 while more conservative takes will likely want to look above .9737. Short-side targets can be investigated at the prior swing-low around .9707, at the Fibonacci level around .9684, the prior swing around .9650 and then .9575.
