USD/CHF drops right now as the Dollar Index accelerates its drop. The pair drops when the index goes down. Surprisingly or not, the greenback drops right now even if the US indicators have reported positive data.
The Unemployment Claims dropped further in the last week. The indicator was reported at 340K below 342K estimates and under 354K in the previous reporting period. Also, the Trade Balance dropped from -73.2B to -70.1B, while the Factory Orders increased by 0.4% as expected.
The pair has increased a little today after the Switzerland Retail Sales dropped unexpectedly by 2.6% versus a 0.2% growth expected.
USD/CHF Fresh Triangle!
USD/CHF has tested and retested the upper median line (UML) failing to take out this dynamic resistance. Now it has printed a symmetrical triangle inside of the extended range. The pair could develop an important growth if it makes a valid breakout through the upper median line (UML).
On the other hand, a downside breakout from the current triangle and from the actual range could announce a sell-off.
A valid breakout, jumping, and stabilizing above the 23.6% (0.9192) level is seen as a long opportunity with a potential upside target at 0.9300.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company - www.instaforex.com
