Note: We had to choose between AUDCHF and EURCHF , we did not wish to opt for EURCHF . To recap, this is an early entry as the price did not reach the support at the time of this writing as discussed in the weekly update.

We are aware that tension between the US and China may drive safe haven flows into CHF. We are attempting to capitalize over a potentially minor intervention by the SNB as was seen last week.

There are risks associated with this entry, corrective gains must materialize this week if we were to consider remaining in the trade. The potential drawdown is a re-test of 0.6825.

We are aware the spread has yet to fully stabilize.
Trade active: According to some reports the US may announce new tariffs on China within the next 24 hours. The prior expectations were for 25% tariffs on Chinese goods, it is now expected to be 10%. The US is attempting to bring China to the negotiating table.

We saw some GBP strength in today's session on expectations for a brexit deal. To recap, it has been suggested an emergency meeting will be held in November but a deal is expected to be agreed upon.

Both USDCAD and AUDCHF made no significant progress in today's session. There has been some AUDCHF weakness but it is minor at the time of this writing bearing in mind it is a weekly entry.

The monetary policy minutes (RBA) is the key release for AUDCHF during the Asian session.
Trade active: Move a Stop Loss to Entry Price
Trade closed: stop reached: AUDCHF recent gains in today's session paved the way for a possible +70 pips retracement. We are unwilling to absorb the potential retracement. In an event the price corrects lower we may re-enter AUDCHF at a lower price.

AUDCHF is trading at 0.7027 at the time of this writing, we are closing the long trade at market price.
