- USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.8934, 0.8904, 0.8861
- Resistance: 0.8983-94, 0.9022-36, 0.9061
The US Dollar continued to push higher against the Swiss Franc, with prices rising to a one-month high en route to the 0.90 figure. Near-term resistance is in the 0.8983-94 area, marked by the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion and the June 13 close. A break above that on a daily closing basis aims for the 0.9022-36 region, bracketed by the 50% level and the June 5 top. Alternatively, a reversal back below the 23.6% Fib at 0.8934 clears the way for a test of the 14.6% expansion at 0.8904.
Prices are too close to resistance to justify entering long from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal argues against taking up the short side. We will remain flat for now.
