USD/CHF 2014 outlook - who is winning as the safe haven currency?

Written By : forexabode || 2013-12-30 08:33:40 GMT

USD/CHF is not stopping to prove the bearish sentiments. The race seems to be continuously on to prove which is the safe haven currency and which is "THE" safe haven currency. The last week's move to 0.8799 was just a "touch and go back" move but there was a lot to read between the lines. Between the lines Well, what we mentioned about "reading between the lines" was not just an figurative expression.

USD/CHF had slightly more consolidation than what we had mentioned 2 weeks back and quoted above. The pair had gone as high as 0.9001 i.e. 17 pips above the resistance zone indicated but then fell again sharply to go as low as 0.8799 before an immediate recover before closing for the week at 0.8913. The sharp break below 0.8840 came as another step in indicating that the outlook for some deeper declines is holding well.

Is USD/CHF Heading For A Nosedive?

Written By : forexabode || 2013-12-16 01:18:56 GMT

The strong downtrend which had started from the week of May 31, 2010 had taken USD/CHF from 1.1731 to 0.7069 during the week of August 8, 2011. The recovery to 0.9315 from the low of 0.7069 had a very strong momentum and had come as quite promising but then the momentum slowed down even though the pair managed to touch 0.9972. The resistance came just shy of the psychological level of parity i.e.

USD/CHF found well below 0.8894 and continued its decline after touching 0.8934 and went as low as 0.8840 before recovering to 0.8918 and then closing for the week at 0.8893. Even if it was a touch and go situation but the move to 0.8840 has made the bearish outlook stronger for USD/CHF. The pair has been in a very volatile sideways mode for over past two years.

USD/CHF found resistance at 0.9110 which was according to the resistance zone mentioned by us during the last weekend. The pair then moved as indicated and went as low as 0.8912 before closing, bearishly, at 0.8917. The strong fall well below the psychological 0.9000 level has again brought the strong bearish sentiments in the picture. However a caution is needed as long as there is no break below the 0.8890 support.

USD/CHF had broken below the support which we had indicated 2 weeks back. The pair continued its slow downward journey to go as low as 0.9028 before closing for the week at 0.9061. If resistance holds in the range of 0.9110 to 0.9131 (55-day EMA and previous resistance) then possibilities of further drop cannot be ruled out but we expect a good support from 0.9000 psychological level.

Overall Price-Action Trend of USD/CHF 

Monthly chart of USD/CHF, indicating the overall trend.

The above chart shows that USD/CHF is once again testing the long-term price-action channel resistance. However considering the loss of downward momentum since the pair had gone for some correction during September 2011 and then has been staying well over 0.8500, the possibilities of an upward break are good. A break above November 2013's 0.9249 would represent that break. Such a move may take USD/CHF for some significant upward consolidation.
