USD/CHF’s corrective recovery from 0.9879 extended higher last week and breached 1.0010 minor resistance. But it failed to sustain above the resistance. Initial bias remains neutral this week first. On the upside, sustained break of 1.0010 will suggest that pull back from 1.0124 has completed. Intraday bias will be turned back to the upside for 1.0124/28 resistance zone. On the downside, break of 0.9879 will resume the fall from 1.0124 to 0.9716 key support.
In the bigger picture, focus is back on medium term trend line (now at 0.9865). Decisive break there will argue that whole rise from 0.9186 has completed. Further break of 0.9716 will confirm reversal and target next support level at 0.9541. Nevertheless, there is still a chance that price action from 1.0128 are forming a consolidative pattern with fall from 1.0124 as third leg. If this is the case, stronger support should be seen between 0.9716 and the trend line to contain downside.
In the long term picture, price actions from 0.7065 (2011 low) are not clearly impulsive yet. Thus, we’ll treat it as developing into a corrective pattern, at least, until a firm break of 1.0342 resistance.
