USD/CNH Technical Analysis: pair hits fresh 5.5-month low, RSI oversold

  • The USD/CNH pair fell to 6.7684 soon before press time - its lowest level since July 26 - having witnessed a head-and-shoulders breakdown on Wednesday.
  • That bearish pattern has opened up downside towards 6.70-6.69 (target as per the measured move method).
  • The pair, however, could be in for a minor bounce before falling to 6.70, as the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) of 29.43 is reporting oversold conditions for the first time since February 2018. The RSI on the 4-hour and the hourly chart is also hovering in oversold territory below 30.00.
  • The bearish outlook would be invalidated if the corrective bounce if any, ends up clearing the head-and-shoulders neckline resistance (former support).
