3/09/2010 - USD/CHF - Price action on USD/CHF, a daily chart of which is shown, has consolidated in a tight, slightly bearish consolidation right underneath a key long-term downtrend resistance line extending from the 2008/09/10 high hit in November 2008. Since recently hitting this trendline in mid-February, price has bumped up against it several more times without breaking the dynamic resistance imposed by the line. Currently, since the lows around parity (1.0000) in early December, this pair has been entrenched in a medium-term uptrend. The key upside event to watch for within the context of this current uptrend would be a breakout above the noted long-term downtrend line. In this event, a close upside resistance target resides around the key 1.1000 support/resistance price region. Downside support within the context of the current uptrend resides around the 1.0600 price region.
