USD/CHF has bottomed out for now just shy of the 0.89 handle having lost the handle earlier on I the session as the start of this week. Karen Jones, Head of FICC Technical Analysis at Commerzbank noted that USD/CHF last week tested and held 3 times at the 0.8862/46 zone. “This represents the 38.2% retracement from the 2011 low and a Fibonacci extension. We continue to look for this to hold. We note the 13 count on the 240 minute chart and intraday charts are have become more positive. A close above the 0.9097 resistance line is needed to alleviate immediate downside pressure and trigger a recovery to the 100 day ma at 0.9138”. Jones further added that, currently, failure at 0.8845/20 will introduce scope to the bottom of the channel at 0.8703 but this is not our favoured scenario. “We continue to watch for signs of reversal”.
