Key quotes

“USD/CHF has eroded its four-month downtrend. The close above here introduces scope for a deeper correction to the 55-day ma at 0.9173, which is currently holding and potentially the 38.2% retracement of the move down from the March peak at 0.9342.” 

“It should be noted that the market is possibly basing and above 0.9342 would suggest a test of the six-month downtrend at 0.9456.” 

“Dips should remain contained by 0.9078/48. Only a slide below 0.9048 will trigger a slide back to the 0.8998 recent low.”
