Looking at the daily chart, we notice since August 7 EUR/CHF has been pointing to the downside, eyeing a test of the low end of current trading zone 1.0810 – 1.0960.

Thus, a close below the low end of the zone could send the price towards 1.0623. Although, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart (Zoomed in) need to be followed closely.

On the flip-side, any failure to close below the low end of the zone could push EURCHF towards the high end. The daily resistance level at 1.0923 should be considered. Further close above the high end may see the price trading even higher towards 1.1001. Nonetheless, the resistance levels underscored on the chart need to be kept in focus.
