The upside of EUR/CHF has so far been limited by 1.0975 (the 50-day MA and the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the December decline).

The retest of the resistance in the 1.0940/46 area may thus represent an opportunity to enter a short position targeting the lows in the 1.0920 area and the support line just below 1.0900.
