7/22/2009 – USD/CHF – Price action on USD/CHF, a daily chart of which is shown, after breaking down below a key uptrend channel, made a quick pullback up to the point of breakdown, and is currently in consolidation right under the channel. With a continued bearish bias off the breakdown, which would be confirmed on a further strong break below the 1.0620 low, the next major support target resides in the key 1.0400 support/resistance price region. On any fundamentally-driven break back above the current 1.0700 resistance, which could lead price to move back up into the channel, intermediate upside resistance resides around the 1.0800 price region.
