USDCHF Forex Exchange Opened increased 0.0004 or 0.04% to 0.9731 on Wednesday August 9 from 0.9727 in the previous trading session. Historically, the Swiss Franc reached an all time high of 3.88 in April of 1972 and a record low of 0.72 in August of 2011.
USD/CHF’s is losing some upside momentum again as seen in 4 hour MACD. But with 0.9630 support intact, further rise is expected to 38.2% retracement of 1.0342 to 0.9437 at 0.9783 first. As noted before, prior break of 0.9699 resistance suggests near term reversal after defending 0.9443 key support. Break of 0.9783 will target channel resistance (now at 0.9887). On the downside, break of 0.9630, however, will indicate completion of the rebound and turn bias back to the downside for 0.9437.
In the bigger picture, current development argues that USD/CHF has successfully defended 0.9443 key support level. And long term range trading in 0.9443/1.0342 is extending with another rise. At this point, there is no sign of an up trend yet. Hence, while further rise is expected in USD/CHF, we’ll start to be cautious on loss of momentum above 61.8% retracement of 1.0342 to 0.9437 at 0.9996.
