USD/CHF Price Analysis: Pressing into psychological hurdle at 0.98


  • USD/CHF's daily chart shows an inverse head-and-shoulders breakout. 
  • Other key indicators are also reporting bullish bias.
  • The odds appear stacked in favor of a break above 0.98.

USD/CHF is better bid at press time and looks to cross the psychological resistance at 0.98 with the daily chart reporting bullish conditions. 

To start with, the inverse head-and-shoulders breakout confirmed earlier this week has created room for a rally to 0.9907 (target as per the measured move method). 

Backing the bullish reversal pattern is the above-50 reading on the 14-day relative strength. Additionally, the 10-day average has crossed above the 50-day average, a sign of strengthening bullish momentum. 

The bullish case would weaken if the spot drops below the Feb. 12 low of 0.9741, invalidating the higher lows setup.
