USD/CHF Analysis

This pair has been trendless and consolidative for a long while, and it has tended to act in a consolidative over the long term generally over the past several years.

This environment suggests that trading reversals off key levels in either direction, especially at the extremes of the price chart shown below, would be a logical approach to trading this currency pair today.

This means a long at 0.9900 or a short at 1.0033 but the two nearby levels also look attractive as the price action here in this pair is so evenly balanced.USDCHFThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the CHF or the USD.
