USD/CHF Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 0.9868; (P) 0.9896; (R1) 0.9933; More…

USD/CHF rebounds strongly today but stays below 0.9989 minor resistance. Intraday bias remains neutral first. On the upside, above 0.9989 will resume the rebound from 0.9787 and target 1.0056 high. Break will resume whole rally from 0.9186. On the downside, below 0.9855 will likely resume the correction from 1.0056 through 0.9787 support. But downside should be contained by 38.2% retracement of 0.9186 to 1.0056 at 0.9724 to bring rebound.

In the bigger picture, medium term decline from 1.0342 has completed with three waves down to 0.9186. Rise from there is currently viewed as a leg inside the long term range pattern. Hence, while further rally would be seen, we’d be cautious on strong resistance from 1.0342 to limit upside. For now, further rise is expected as long as 38.2% retracement of 0.9186 to 1.0056 at 0.9724 holds. However, sustained break of 0.9724 will dampen this bullish view and would at least bring deeper fall to 61.8% retracement at 0.9518.
