Technical Analysis: Long USD/CHF

Technical Analysis: Long USD/CHF

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Nick Cawley, Analyst, May 16, 2017

My Picks: Long USDCHF

Expertise: Fundamental/Technical Analysis

Average Time Frame of Trades: One week to several weeks.

USDCHF is starting to look attractive again as technical indicators point to a reversal of the recent bear move from 1.03439 to a current price of 0.98938.

On the weekly chart, the pair is now trading below the 20- and 50-wma and is within touching distance of breaking below the 100-wma at 0.98580. This level is also dominated by a two lows on the daily chart around 0.98600, made on May 4 and May 5, providing a layer of support.

While markets may be turning bullish on the pair shortly, a break below the 0.98600 level could open up a move to the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level at 0.97908, a level last seen six-months ago.

On a macro front, while investors are still happy taking on risk – equity markets are hitting multi-year and all-time highs – the CHF, a noted safe-haven currency, continues to get stronger
