USDCHF Price Trade opened increased 0.0052 or 0.53% to 0.9708 on Thursday August 3 from 0.9656 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 is staying in consolidation below 0.9726 and intraday bias remains neutral. Another rise is expected as long as 0.9594 support holds. Prior break of 0.9699 resistance suggests near term reversal after defending 0.9443 key support. Above 0.9726 will target 38.2% retracement of 1.0342 to 0.9437 at 0.9783 first. Break will target channel resistance (now at 0.9899). However, firm break of 0.9594 will dampen this bullish view 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.
