USD/CHF retest of 0.9553 on the cards – Commerzbank
According to Commerzbank’s analyst, Karen Jones the pair has alleviated bearish pressure and might re-test 0.9553 interim-high, ““USD/CHF has continued to recover and is eroding the near-term downtrend, this alleviates immediate downside pressure and allows for a possible retest of the 0.9553 interim high. This will need to be overcome in order to further alleviate downside pressure and allow for recovery to the short term downtrend at 0.9666.”
