Talking Points:

  • USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:0.8973 (trend line), 0.8908 (38.2% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 0.8990 (23.6% Fib exp.), 0.9036-39 (Jun 5 high, 38.2% Fib exp.)

The US Dollar is struggling to make headway above the 0.90 figure against Swiss Franc after breaking falling trend line resistance set from November 2013. Near-term resistance is at 0.8990, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a sustained push above that eyeing the 0.9036-39 area marked by the 38.2% level and the June 5 high. Alternatively, a turn back below the trend line (now at 0.8973) on a daily closing basis opens the door for a test of the 38.2% Fib retracementat 0.8908.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices sitting squarely at resistance. On the other hand, taking up the short side seems premature absent a defined bearish reversal signal. We will remain flat for now.
