[B]My picks:[/B] Watching for EUR/CHF Break
[B]Expertise:[/B] Fundamentals Combined With Technicals
[B]Average Time Frame of Trades:[/B] 1 Day - 1 Week

EUR/CHF has spent a lengthy amount of time consolidating with a tight channel, and while the pair bounced last week from support at the 50% fib of 1.4586-1.5448 at 1.5017, its inability to break above immediate resistance at 1.5130 does little to inspire confidence that further gains are in store. In this situation, I think it may be best to await a breakout, which tends to follow these sorts of consolidations.

[B]Bullish parameters: [/B]Watch for a break above falling trendline resistance at approximately 1.5175. Upside potential may be limited due to resistance at the 200 SMA at 1.5336.

[B]Bearish paramters: [/B]Watch for a break below the April lows and psychological support at 1.5000 to target the 78.6% fib of 1.4586-1.5448 at 1.4772.

Maintain appropriate risk/reward levels.
