USD/CHF Technical Outlook

  • USD/CHF ended its sideways move
  • Bearish signals on USD vs CHF price chart

USD/CHF Price – Bears Ease up

Last week, USD/CHF hit a near four-month low at 0.9362. Ultimately, the pair recovered as some bears seemed to cover, yet the weekly candlestick closed in the red with a 0.4% loss. Alongside that, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) rose from 32 to 40 and reflected a weaker bearish sentiment.

In the background, safe havens rallied over fears that the coronavirus resurgence in the US may cause new restrictions and slow the economic recovery. Investors' eyes will be tomorrow on the US retails sales (June) to take a hint of how bad the recent Coronavirus developments have affected the retail sector.

USD/CHF Daily Price Chart (MAY 7 – July 15, 2020) Zoomed IN

usdchf daily price chart 15-07-20 zoomed in

In Mid-June, USD/CHF pulled up from a three-month slide and started a sideways move creating a lower high with a higher low. This week, the pair resumed bearish price action and declined to the current trading zone 0.9330 – 0.9438.

A close below the low end of the zone may untimely guide USDCHF’s fall towards the March 9 low at 0.9181, and a further break lower that level may encourage bears to press even lower towards 0.9037.

On the other hand, a close above the high end of the zone could open up a push behind USDCHF towards 0.9548 a high mark for a congestion back in mid-June, and a further close above that may encourage bulls to extend the rally towards 0.9640 a high mark for a congestion back in early June.
