USDCHF looking toppy, downside likely

Instrument: USDCHF

Background

Last Thursday was a bearish "outside day" in USDCHF as the recent rally promptly ran out of steam. We went into Friday's jobs numbers looking to see if this would be confirmed. The answer was "yes and no", but price action since then has encouraged me to think we will soon get confirmation and head lower.

In a bigger picture, this is basically a range trade, and the chart suggests USDCHF may have just hit the top end of the range and found sellers again.

Management and risk description

Place stop above 0.9820-27 initially. Move to a scratch once the first target is hit.

Parameters

Entry: Below 0.9800 (currently 0.9790)

Stop: Above 0.9830 

Targets: 0.9740, 0.9660, 0.9580 

Time horizon: 1-2 weeks
