USD/CHF Price Analysis: Technical outlook
From the USD/CHF daily chart perspective, the pair is neutrally biased, consolidated within the limits of solid support found around the 20- and 50-day EMAs, each at 0.9036 and 0.9040) and resistance at the 100-day EMA at 0.9123. Although price action remains sideways, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) shows bulls are in charge, further cemented by the three-day Rate of Change (RoC). Hence, the USD/CHF path of least resistance is upwards. Of note, the Average True Range (ATR) suggests that volatility in the pair could lean up to 60 pips.
Dialing into the USD/CHF hourly chart, price action remains sideways, though it broke above a resistance trendline late in the New York session, exacerbating a rally above 0.9100. However, buyers must reclaim the weekly high of 0.9120, so they can pose a threat toward the last week’s high of 0.9128. The breach of those levels will pave the way towards the R1 daily pivot at 0.9147, ahead of challenging the 0.9200 figure. Conversely, a fall below the daily pivot at 0.9083 could open the door towards the EMAs at around 0.9074/76, followed by the 200-EMA at 0.9065.
