USD/CNH technical analysis: Probing the lower end of the rising wedge on 4H

  • USD/CNH has charted a rising wedge pattern. 
  • A break below 6.8820 would confirm a rising wedge breakdown. 

USD/CNH's bounce from the recent low of 6.8365 has taken the shape of a bearish reversal pattern called a rising wedge and could be short-lived. 

As of writing, USD/CNH is flirting with the lower edge of the rising wedge at 6.8820. A 4-hour close below that level would confirm a rising wedge breakdown and open the doors for a retest of the recent low of 6.8365. 

The case for rising wedge breakdown looks stronger if we take into account the bearish crossover of the 50- and 200-candle moving averages on the 4-hour chart

The case for rising wedge breakdown would weaken if the pair finds acceptance above 6.90.
