USD/CNH Technical Analysis: Falling wedge breakout paves way for re-test of Thurday's high

  • The USD/CNH bounced-off the rising trendline support and cut through resistance at 6.8783 a few minutes before press time, confirming a falling wedge breakout on the 15-minute chart.
  • The bullish continuation pattern indicates that the rally from the Dec. 5 low of 6.8526 has resumed.
  • The relative strength index (RSI) on the 15-min chart has turned bullish above 50.00, having carved out a positive divergence earlier today. As a result, the pair could revisit yesterday's high of 6.9069.
  • The bullish setup would be invalidated if two consecutive 15-min candles close below the ascending trendline. That may happen if equities pick up a strong bid in response to President Trump's tweet that a deal with China is likely to happen within the next 90 days.
