On June 7, USD/CHF bearish move stalled and the pair rallied in the following days but failed to overtake 1.0008 twice effectively capping any start of an uptrend. As such, the sellers did not miss the opportunity and sent the price to print its lowest levels in over five months at 0.9792.

Alongside, on June 12 the Relative Strength Index (RSI) pointed higher however, it failed on June 18 to cross above 50 to start a bullish momentum, reflecting the likelihood of the bearish momentum continuation.
