Looking at the daily chart, we notice last week EUR/CHF rebounded twice from the high end of the current trading zone 1.0960 – 1.0810 and fell after eyeing a test of the low end of the zone.

Hence, a close below the low end of the zone could send the price towards 1.0623. However, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be watched along the way.

On the other hand, any failure in closing below the low end, could push the price towards the high end. Further close above the high end may cause a rally towards 1.1001. Nonetheless, the weekly resistance levels underscored on the chart need to be considered. See the chart to know more about the higher trading zone with the resistance vicinity in a further bullish scenario.
