USD/CHF had reached a low of 0.9395 before turning sideways. Please note that this low was near the double supports of 200-day moving average as well as an emerging trend line. The current 200-day moving average is at 0.9347 i.e. 48 pips below the recent low and the trend line support would be in the range of 0.9310 to 0.9350 because it is slopping upwards.

US Dollar-Swiss Franc (USD/CHF) tried to recover but failed to retest 0.9839 and fell again strongly to 0.9511 i.e. the minor support zone we had indicated during last week. The currency pair closed for the week at 0.9550. The strong fall suggests that we can see some more deeper consolidation. However for past 2 trading days the support has been coming neat 55-day EMA.

US Dollar-Swiss Franc (USD/CHF) had gone as high as 0.9839 before falling to 0.9590 and then closing for the week at 0.9615. Our overall near-term outlook stays bullish for USD/CHF but initially we stay neutral considering the fact that the fall from 0.9839 was a natural one considering the approaching strong psychological level of 1.0000.

US Dollar-Swiss Franc (USD/CHF) had gone slightly below the 0.9220 level mentioned by us 2 weeks back but the strong jump from 0.9206 broke above 0.9400 and then the pair moved as high as 0.9498 before closing for the week at 0.9427. The resistance just 2 pips below the psychological 95.00 level keeps the immediate outlook for USD/CHF neutral and we expect some more downward consolidation first.

The break over 0.9512 was a significant move as it does not even represented the break over the psychological 0.9500 level but suggests a decisive break of the same. The next critical resistance zone will be o.9635/0.9657.

USD/CHF Breaks One Resistance But Another On The Way

Written By : forexabode || 2013-02-28 23:34:59 GMT

USD/CHF has been finding resistance below the critical 200-day moving average for past few days. The currency pair had broken below the 200-day moving average on September 11, 2012 i.e. over 4 and a half months back and since then the price action could not break over this resistance. The break certainly indicates that we can expects further upward gains but there is one more hurdle on the way and that is 0.9389 level.

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.
