Ashraf,

it appears usd.chf has carved out a nice (shorrt-term) bottom here. It is actually continuing to make way, currently at 1.0185. To me this is another "ally" on the side of usd, as it is grinding higher while eur.usd remains stagnant at 1.4485.

At what point do you close the short, or is it like a paired-trade to short usd.chf while shorting either eur.usd or gbp.usd, an you don't leg out. Do you close both at the same time?

Ashraf-

Now that Usd/Jpy got destroyed and decimated and smashed through the TL 92.20 and will not close above this level, will you rescind your call for 93.50 later this week, and 95.00 overall?

At what point will you publicly announce you have thrown in the towel on usd/jpy long, eur/usd short, gbp/usd. Come on, it is not only OK, but ethical to disclose your positions in these pairs were all closed mid-last week.

mont, if you're referring to hints abouyt intervention, just follow the speeches from the various officials, including their new president. Look out for scheduled speeches in the Global Calendar and keep an eye open on bloomberg.com or Reuters if you have a Reuters Terminal.

@Ashraf: where is the best place to get clues as to what SNB are up to, in addition to here of course?
Do you mean Bloomberg, etc? - Many thanks, M.

zwan, i spoke about GBPCHF last week predicting 1.64. we should test 1.63 but not right away. very volatile here. watch out from the SNB though.

Rob, SNB president was replaced and they dont find as much urgency in intervening right now. I said last month GBPCHF would retest those lows and that remains the case. EURCHF is less straight forward. Im bearish EURUSD, but not as much in EURCHF (support may reach 1.47). so still bearish EURUSD and selectively bearish USDCHF in the levels seen in the HOTCHART.

zwan, i see 1.6350.
