USD-CHF: Likely to Head Lower

The following commentary comes from an independent investor or market observer as part of TheStreet's guest contributor program, which is separate from the company's news coverage.

NEW YORK ( fxtechstrategy.com) -- The dollar-Swiss franc currency pair closed this past week lower after reversing its gains from the previous week.

Now USD-CHF's next likely target is 0.8890, the currency pair's Nov. 3 low.

If the pair breaches that target, it will then head toward the 0.8700 psychological level.

A breach of that level will open the door to further weakness toward 0.8609 and then 0.8568.

USD-CHF's weekly relative strength index is bearish and pointing lower, supporting this view.

On any advances, the dollar-Swiss franc currency pair will target 0.9091, its Feb. 9 low.

A reversal of roles as resistance is expected to occur at that level. However, if that does not occur, the next target will be 0.9299, USD-CHF's Feb. 16 high.

Further out, the pair will target 0.9504, its Jan. 13 low, and then 0.9591.

Overall, however, USD-CHF remains biased to the downside on further weakness.
