The New Zealand dollar was the only currency performed better against the US dollar. It was also seen trading higher against the Swiss franc. However, the NZDCHF pair is testing an important resistance area in the form of the 100-day simple moving average. The mentioned MA is also around the 61.8% fib retracement level of the last leg from the 0.7958 high to 0.6100 low. So, we need to see how the pair trades in the near term and whether it can break the 100 MA or not. The next hurdle in that situation is around the 200-day SMA.
Intraday Support Level – 0.7200
Intraday Resistance Level – 0.7350
Overall, as long as the pair is below the 100 MA it might continue trading lower.
A break above the same could ignite more gains moving ahead.
If the NZDCHF pair moves lower from the current levels, then there is a bullish trend line on the daily chart, which could act as a support for the pair in the near term.
SILVER moved lower as the US dollar was seen gaining pace recently. There is a bearish trend line on the daily chart of SILVER which acted as a barrier for SILVER buyers. There is also a fact that prices are well below the 100-day simple moving average, which is a bearish sign for the SILVER in the near term. On the downside, initial support is around the last swing low of $16, followed by the $15.80 level.
Intraday Support Level – $15.80
Intraday Resistance Level – $16.50
Selling rallies around the trend line look like a good option.
A break above the same might call for more gains moving ahead.
On the upside, a break above the 100-day MA might ignite more gains SILVER in the short to medium term.
