AUD/CHF 4H Chart: Surge insight

The Australian Dollar has been trading in a three-month ascending channel pattern against the Swiss Franc. The exchange rate bounced off its lower boundary on September 10 and followed by an upside wave.

The currency pair was trading near the bottom border of the channel pattern at 0.7170 during the morning hours of Friday's session.
