USD/CHF Price Analysis: Technical outlook
From a technical standpoint, the USD/CHF clashed with a five-month-old downslope resistance trendline, reaching a new six-week high, but has retraced, trimming its earlier gains and turning negative, so far in the day, about to form a ‘gravestone-doji’ which would suggest further downside expected.
For buyers to resume their uptrend, the pair must reclaim 0.8900. A breach of the latter will expose the fourth-month-old previous support turned resistance trendline above the 0.9000 figure, followed by the 200-day Moving Average (DMA) at 0.9082. Conversely, the USD/CHF first support emerges at a May 4 daily low of 0.8819. Break below will send the pair towards 0.8800, followed by the current week’s low of 0.8759.
