Strong upside pressures.

  • EUR/CHF is heading higher and closer to resistance at 1.15850 (19/10/2017 high) while strong resistance at 1.1833 (15/01/2018 high) remains. Hourly supports are given at 1.14269 (04/10/2017 low) and 1.1388 (02/10 2017 low).

  • In the longer term, the technical structure has reversed. Strong resistance is given at 1.20 (level before the unpeg). Yet, the ECB's slowing QE program is likely to cause buying pressures on the euro, which should weigh in favour of the EUR/CHF. Support can be found at 1.0234 (20/04/2015 low).
