USD/CNY continues to threaten the key support at 7.0519/0459 – Credit Suisse

USD/CNY trades at 7.068, showing no changes on a day, and the key support at 7.0519/0459 is still pressured. The Credit Suisse analyst team expects a close below the mentioned support to unfold a deeper move lower which could send the pair below the 7.00 level.

Key quotes

“USD/CNY remains rangebound near term as the market continues to pressure against the key support at 7.0519/0459 – the late April and current June lows, 38.2% retracement of the rally from January and 200-day average.” 

“With daily RSI momentum maintaining a top and weekly MACD momentum also turning lower, the 7.0519/0459 support is seen at risk and a closing break would see a price top established to warn of a more important move lower, with support then seen next at 7.0298, ahead of 7.0091 and then the medium-term uptrend from the 2018 low and 61.8% retracement at 6.9868/9693.”

“Resistance at 7.0982 needs to cap to keep the immediate risk lower.”
