The Franc was very weak on Thursday with a strong break of support and a good rally in EURCHF. Clearly traders were hoping for a less dollar bullish NFP so when the great numbers came out chose to take profit from USDCHF shorts and return the CHF% index back to a more sensible comparative price in relation to the Euro. As such a push back to support can not be ruled out just yet but we now have a signal that when we next catch a bid for the Euro, we should in fact be buying CHF for a greater upside bias. I am bullish CHF

**CHF% Index Resistance (USDCHF support): USDCHF 0.8914, 0.8896**
**CHF% Index Support (USDCHF resistance): USDCHF 0.9000, 0.9022**
Note – the large spike on Mon 16th is a GBPCHF pricing error at the broker
