Can we resurrect this Interactive Trading EUR/CHF pair?

Atm, I'm taking advantage of the range 1.5070 - 1.5055

I trade it sometimes. I'm scalping usually, looking for a >15 pip range on the M1 chart, with evidence of some 5-pip candles. When the market is very liquid and EUR/CHF is confined in a typical range and I see lots of yo-yo action in the PA, I can hit short targets one after the next. But there are lots of sneaky breakouts, too...so I tend to scalp on the E/U, which has less than 1/2 the spread.

Good idea. Let's have some with the Eur/Chf.

Honestly, I am a bit suprised seeing the pair trading this low with absolutely no intention of moving higher. I thought that traders might be tired of challenging the SNB but the free 100 pip ride from 1,501 up is sure tempting.

Oh well, maybe I just have to wait till we get to 1,501 and get in again with a bigger amount for a nice and quick ride to 1,51.

So far it has been almost too easy.

Currently I am buying everything below 1,5058 with TP @65

58 buy, 65 TP? What's your spread? 4 pips here.

True about the sneaky breakouts, but if you have a decent SL you have a 1/1 that the breakout heads in your direction and you have your TP (or even higher when it's a big move of several pips at once). If it's down your SL protects you and the many ranging scalps should cover that loss.

My spread was 2,7. I know it's not really a great trade, but I got around 25 pips out of this pair in the last 5 hours. It's a very relaxing way of making some money. I use a somewhat higher leverage on this pair than on dollar pairs.

Yep, it IS relaxing trading that pair atm. Today it is in a downtrend, but it can be defined as ranging. It so slow and pulsing

The instability was due to the Swiss National Bank intervention last week. Which is cause for concern, I'm getting a signal to go short, but that may be tempting the gods (SNB).

Hello all,

Several times in the last few weeks I have read about long trades on the CHF being the closest one can get to a "sure thing" in forex these days, due to the SNB protecting 1.50 (on EUR/CHF).

What do you think?

I would say if we get close to 1.50 again, but I'm short eur/chf at 1.5243, just looking for it to reach 1.5200, so close.
