NEW YORK ( -- The USD-CHF pair is now seeing weakening following a stall in its recovery strength. However, the pair's bottom-forming process still remains intact as long as it can hold above the 0.9071 level and its 200 daily exponential moving average.

This could see the pair return to its Wednesday high at 0.9331 level with a break of there opening the door for a move toward the 0.9299 level, its Feb. 16 high. Further out, the 0.9504 level, its Jan. 13 low and then the 0.9591 level will come in as the next upside targets.

Alternatively, the risk to our upside view will be for the pair to reverse its present bull pressure and then retarget the 0.8929 level, its Feb. 24 low. In such a case, the 0.8890 level, its Nov. 3 low, will be aimed at. A breach there will call for further declines toward the psychological mark of 0.8700.

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