This alert is in continuation of the previous alert about USD/CHF. USD/CHF is hesitating after an effort to break over the 55-day EMA resistance and is mainly staying below that level. A decisive break over the recent 0.9214 may bring some further consolidation towards the 61.8% retracement i.e. towards 92.50 but in case the resistance holds and a break below 0.9153 takes place then some deeper moves can be seen.

The above chart shows that USD/CHF is once again testing the long-term price-action channel resistance. However considering the loss of downward momentum since the pair had gone for some correction during September 2011 and then has been staying well over 0.8500, the possibilities of an upward break are good. A break above November 2013's 0.9249 would represent that break. Such a move may take USD/CHF for some significant upward consolidation.
