Looking at daily chart, we notice USD/CHF still moving in the trading zone (0.9860 - 0.9930) entered in Dec 2. Last week, the price tested the low end of the zone however, rebounded then closed above it highlighting seller’s hesitation at this stage.

Thus, the pair could push higher towards the high end of the zone on the back of more exit operations from sellers. A close above the high end may encourage more market participants to rally USDCHF towards the vicinity of 1.0008-15. Although, the daily resistance levels and area marked on the chart (zoomed in) would offer attractive exit points for buyers.

That said, any close below the low end of the zone could send the price towards 0.9758 contingent on clearing the neckline of double top pattern with the weekly support level and area. if the pair breaks and remains below 0.9840 this suggests sellers could press towards 0.9660.

From the daily chart, we notice on Thursday EUR/CHF rallied to the higher trading zone 1.0960 – 1.1001 on the back of some sellers took profit. Although, the price failed in multiple occasions to close above the 50-day average showing sellers may not be done yet.

Hence, a close below the 1.0950 could embolden market’s participants to press towards 1.0826. Nevertheless, the downside move may weaken at the weekly support area and levels underscored on the chart (zoomed in) as some sellers could exit the market at these points.

On the flip-side, a close above the high end of the zone could pave the way for buyers to take charge and push EURCHF towards the vicinity of 1.1057-63. Yet, the weekly resistance area marked on the chart should be considered.
