Looking at daily chart, we notice today buyers attempt to push USD/CHF to a higher trading zone 0.9930 – 1.0008. Therefore, a successful close above the low end of this zone could send the price towards the high end.
Further close above 1.0015 could see USDCHF trading towards 1.0128. That said, the weekly resistance levels underscored on the chart (zoomed in) should be watched closely.
On the flip side, any failure in closing above the low end of the zone would mean buyer’s hesitation and could lead USDCHF towards 0.9860. Further close below this level might press the pair towards 0.9758. Although, the daily and weekly support area and levels underlined on the chart should be considered.

From the daily chart, we notice on Wednesday EUR/CHF rallied back to a higher trading zone 1.1001- 1.1057. However, since Oct 11 Buyers failed at clearing 1.1032 in multiple occasions, showing weakness of bullish momentum.
It’s noteworthy that, a close below low end of the zone could open the door to sellers to press EURCHF for a test of the neckline of head and shoulders pattern. The price may drop towards 1.0888 if breaks and remains below 1.0974.
On the other hand, a close above the low end of the zone could entice buyers to test again 1.1032 then 1.1057. However, a close above 1.1063 maybe required to resume bullish price action towards 1.1190. In that scenario, the weekly resistance areas marked on the chart should be kept in focus.
