Talking Points:

  • USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:0.8943 (23.6% Fib ret.), 0.8901 (38.2% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 0.8970 (14.6% Fib ret.), 0.90, 0.9001 (38.2% Fib exp.)

The US Dollar made a tentative move lower against the Swiss Franc after the FOMC policy announcement, issuing the lowest close in two weeks. Near-term support is at 0.8943, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 0.8901. Alternatively, a reversal back above the 14.6% level at 0.8970 opens the door for another challenge of the 0.90 figure, a level reinforced by the 38.2% Fib expansion at 0.9012.

The available trading range is too narrow to justify a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will continue to stand on the sidelines until a more actionable opportunity presents itself.
