USD/CNH Technical Analysis: Tug of War Below 6.7000

USD/CNH Technical Analysis: Tug of War Below 6.7000

Oded Shimoni, Junior Currency Analyst

Talking Points:

- USD/CNH failed to break above the 6.7 resistance, fell below support at 6.6860

- The pair found a bid from short term support at 6.6700

- Bullish conviction at this stage might require a break above 6.7

The US Dollar is trading higher versus the Chinese Yuan in offshore trade, after the pair found support around the last short term swing high and formed a “bullish engulfing bar”.

The pair had difficulties cracking the 6.7 level and the US ISM Services numbers provided a catalyst for a break of the short term support at 6.6860.

But the pair did catch a bid around the last short term swing high (~6.6700) while forming a “bullish engulfing bar”, implying another attempt at the key 6.7000 handle.

At the very near term, the pair faces a potential hurdle at 6.6860, but real bullish conviction might require a break and a hold above 6.7.

A failure to push higher seems likely to see 6.6700 cleared as focus may shift to 6.6500 as a major line of defense, followed by July lows at 6.6224.
