Cross-Eyeing: GBP/CHF

crosseyed chart

The Swiss Franc has been on a tear lately, and the Sterling – well let’s just say it hasn’t been so well! Things might change for Cable soon as the UK reported a better than expected Trade Balance number at -6.2B versus the forecast of -7.0B. On the chart, we see that the pair has dropped past the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement area and found support at the 76% level.

With the stochastics starting to turn in the oversold territory, I would like to go long, but I will wait for the pair to retrace back to 2.3560 before doing so.

Long GBP/CHF at 2.3560, stop at 2.3460, pt1 at 2.3680, pt2 at 2.3800, pt3 at 2.3900
