USD/CHF looking bullish

Karen Jones, analyst at Commerzbank said that USD/CHF has seen a rebound off the Fibonacci support at 0.9197. She suspects that we will see a move towards 0.9380 then 0.9455. For this to be regarded as more than a correction, she said rallies will need to regain 0.9484 (50% Fibonacci retracement) to alleviate immediate downside pressure. Further resistance can be seen around the 0.9247. She said May low and then along the 200 day moving average at 0.9345 and dips should find interim support at 0.9206/0.9176 ahead of 0.9130.
