Swiss Franc, Pausing Before Making Another Move North?

Hiyo FX friends! Here’s my short and sweet technical view on the CHFJPY pair. As you can see from its daily chart, the pair has broken out from a rare inverted head and shoulders continuation pattern. You see, an inverted head and shoulders pattern is generally a bullish reversal pattern although it can occur as a continuation from time to time as in this case. In any case, the upside target for the pair, judging by the height of the pattern and projecting it from the point of breakout, would be somewhere below 88.00. Sustained buying interest could push it over to that marker. At present, though, the pair’s move up north could take a halt given its overbought condition. Given this, it is possible for the pair to range or even retrace for awhile. If ever it weakens, the neckline of the previous formation should keep it afloat. Still, I could more or less say that things are looking up for the Swiss franc in the near term. Long Swiss franc anyone?
