USD-CHF: More Gains Likely

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 ( -- Although downside vulnerability cannot be totally ruled out, the dollar-Swiss franc currency pair is likely to see more upside.

The currency pair maintained a second week of recovery.

A recapturing of key resistance at 0.9299, its Feb. 16 high, is in the cards.

Further out, 0.9504, the pair's Jan. 13 low, and then 0.9591 will come in as the next upside targets.

The dollar-Swiss franc's weekly RSI is bullish and pointing higher, suggesting further strength.

Alternatively, the risk to our upside view will be for the pair to reverse its present bull pressure and then retarget 0.8929 level, its Feb. 24 low.

In such a case, the pair will aim at its Nov. 3 low at 0.8890. A breach there will call for further declines toward the 0.8700 psychological level.

On the whole, the pair remains biased to the upside on correction but vulnerable.
