Talking Points:


  • USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:0.9769, 0.9695, 0.9428
  • Resistance: 0.9859, 1.0126, 1.0251


The US Dollar moved sharply lower against the Swiss Franc, issuing the largest decline in two months. A daily close below trend line support at 0.9769 exposes the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 0.9695. Alternatively, a move above the 14.6% Fib at 0.9859 opens the door for a test of the March 12 high at 1.0251.


Prices are wedged too closely between near-term support and resistance levels to justify taking a trade on a long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will continue to stand aside until a more attractive opportunity presents itself.
