Since Late April, USD/CHF uptrend has been showing weakness in the upward trend momentum. On May 10 started a bearish movement descending to the lower trading range (1.0134 – 1.0008) and breaking below 1.0126 where the neck line of the double top pattern resides.

The pair rallied afterwards however, it failed to test the neckline, alongside this development the relative strength indicator (RSI) last week failed to cross above 50 demonstrating that the buyers were unable to gain control.

To Summarize: It is difficult to talk about downtrend correction if USD/CHF is trading below the zone 1.0126 – 1.0134. Therefore, the price might fall hinting towards 1.0050 however, the supports at 1.0085 and 50% Fibonacci retracement at 1.0066 are worth monitoring. The pair could also push to the low end of the trading range at 1.0008 contingent on breaking through two support zones at 1.0049 – 1.0044 and 1.0026 – 1.0020.

What if USD/CHF Closes Above 1.0134?

This will negate the double top formation and move the pair to a higher trading range, where it may suggest a rally towards 1.0215. However, USD/CHF must clear resistance level at 1.0143 with the zone between 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1.0157 – 1.0165 additionally, levels at 1.0184 and 1.0200.
