USDCHF: Bouncing off support


Bouncing off support.

  • USD/CHF has declined toward the hourly support at 0.9955 (30/03/2017 base low) before bouncing. The short-term technical structure is negative as long as prices remain below the hourly resistance at 1.0171 (07/03/2017). Monitor hourly support is given at 0.9955 (30/03/2017 base low) then 0.9814 (27/03/2017 low).

  • In the long-term, the pair is still trading in range since 2011 despite some turmoil when the SNB unpegged the CHF. Key support can be found 0.8986 (30/01/2015 low). The technical structure favours nonetheless a long term bullish bias since the unpeg in January 2015.





  • USD/CAD has increased sharply this week. The pair is now consolidating. There is still a strong upside momentum. Resistances can now be found 1.3535 (09/03/2017 high). Hourly support can be located at 1.3456 (04/04/2017 high) then 1.3353 (20/01/2017 high).

  • In the longer term, there is a golden cross with the 50 dma crossing the 200 dma indicating further upside pressures. Strong resistance is given at 1.4690 (22/01/2016 high). Long-term support can be found at 1.2461 (16/03/2015 low).




Failing to find demand.

  • AUD/USD is still trying to bounce off strong support at 0.7494. However, as long as prices remain below the resistance at 0.7608 (17/04/2017 high), the short-term technical structure is negative. Key resistance stands at 0.7681 (30/03/2017 high).

  • In the long-term, we are waiting for further signs that the current downtrend is ending. Key supports stand at 0.6009 (31/10/2008 low) . A break of the key resistance at 0.8295 (15/01/2015 high) is needed to invalidate our long-term bearish view.
