Looking at daily chart, we notice on early Oct USD/CHF printed its highest level in five months at 1.0028, then failed to rally further. Later, the price declined as buyers exited the market.
On Friday, similar scenario happened. Therefore, the price could be on its way for a test of the low end of current trading zone 0.9930 – 1.0008. Further close below 0.9922 could lead more buyers to abandon the market and would open the door for sellers to take charge and press towards the vicinity of 0.9660-52. Although, the weekly daily support level underlined on the chart should be monitored.
That said, any failure in closing below the low end of the zone could reverse the price’s direction, sending USD/CHF towards the high end. Further close above 1.0015 could lead more buyers to enter the market and push towards the vicinity of 1.0112-18. Yet, the weekly resistance levels marked on the chart should be kept in focus.
