Talking Points:

  • USD/CHF Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.8697 (Wedge bottom)
  • Resistance: 0.8806 (23.6% Fib ret., Wedge top), 0.8873 (38.2% Fib ret.)

The Swiss Franc may be on the verge of a turn lower against the US Dollar as USD/CHF price action traces out a falling Wedge chart formation. The pattern speaks to fading downside momentum and may precede a reversal upward. Breaking resistance at 0.8806, the intersection of the Wedge top and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement initially exposes the 38.2% level at 0.8873. Wedge support is now at 0.8697.

Confirmation of a Wedge setup requires the pattern’s completion on a daily close above its upper boundary. With that in mind, we will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for preliminary cues to mature into an actionable long trade opportunity.
