Key quotes

“EUR/CHF has eroded the 2018-2020 downtrend at 1.0818 and the recent high at 1.0838 is exposed. A close above 1.0838 is needed (favoured) to target the 1.0915 June high and the 1.1058 October 2019 high. We look for an imminent break higher, dips lower have remained shallow and longer-term, we favour a break higher.” 

“The market will find initial support at the 1.0736 the mid-August low. The July low and the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1.0607/1.0593 are regarded as stronger support that is expected to hold.”
