Trading Plan For The USD/CHF: October 6, 2017
Shain Vernier • 1 min read
This week has been a good one here at FX Leaders, successfully trading a variety of asset classes. Yesterday I outlined the scenario facing the USD/CHF for the intermediate future. The release of the U.S. unemployment metrics have shown the technical levels to be valid.
Today’s U.S. session may produce a few trades for this product. Let’s dig into the levels and get to it!
Trading the USD/CHF requires patience and discipline. It is not a wide-open product such as gold or oil. And that is ok. In my book, pips are pips.
USD/CHF, Daily Chart
The levels look to be valid, with .9800 acting as a potential catalyst for upcoming sessions. The post-U.S. unemployment numbers rally to .9837 indicates strength in the USD.
Here are the trades to make during today’s session:
Short the yearly 50% Fibonacci retracement at .9878-.9874. Stop loss above .9900.
Long from the yearly 38% Fibonacci retracement at .9770-.9776. Stop under Thursday’s low of .9742.
Long scalps from .9801 with tight take profits and stop losses are also possible.
Bottom Line: Aside from the scalps, both of these scenarios are position trades. A 1:1 R/R ratio gives us reasonable profit targets and stop losses in the event that an open position is to spill over into the weekend.
As always, trade smart and keep the leverage in check!
