Attractive Opportunity to Buy the US Dollar You May Have Missed

Attractive Opportunity to Buy the US Dollar You May Have Missed

USDCHFRetail forex crowds are their most long USDCHF since the pair last traded to year-to-date lows near SFr 0.9000, and extremely one-sided sentiment favors buying at these levels.

Trade Implications – USDCHF: We would typically take a contrarian view and sell USDCHF as a whopping 80+ percent of retail traders are currently long. But the crowd is often ‘right’ at major price/sentiment extremes; we’re looking for a good price at which to buy.

Risk is well-defined here as a close below 0.9000 would invalidate the trade, while topside targets start at major intraday congestion levels in the 0.9140-0.9170 range.
