  • USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:0.9047, 0.9010, 0.8951
  • Resistance: 0.9110, 0.9189, 0.9268

The US Dollar is in consolidation mode below the 0.91 figure against the Swiss Franc after rising to the highest level in six months last week. A daily close below support at 0.99067, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, exposes the 23.6% level at 0.0.9010. Alternatively, a move above the 76.4% Fib expansion at 0.9110 opens the door for a test of the 100% barrier at 0.9189.

Positioning is inconclusive at this point. On one hand, the latest leg of the uptrend launched from mid-July appears to have been overturned, warning losses may ahead, but prices are too close to support to justify a short on a risk/reward basis. On the other, the longer-term trend favors the bulls but a defined near-term bullish signal is absent. We will stand aside for now.
