The Swiss franc was seen gaining ground recently especially against currencies such as the Australian dollar and the British pound. The AUDCHF pair traded lower and cleared an important support area in the form of a bullish trend line on the 4 hour chart. The recent break ignited a downside reaction in the pair, which could take it towards the 50% fib retracement level of the last leg from the 0.7405 low to 0.7738 high in the near term. The most important point is the fact that the 100 hour moving average is also sitting around the same fib level. So, there is a chance that buyers might appear around the 0.7570 level.
Intraday Support Level – 0.7570
Intraday Resistance Level – 0.7680
Overall, as long as the pair is below the 0.7680 level it might continue trading lower.
A break below the stated level could ignite more gains moving ahead.
If the AUDCHF pair moves back higher in the near term, then initial resistance is around the 0.7680 level. A break above the same might call for a test of the last high of 0.7740.
The Euro for a change managed to gain strength against the British pound. The EURGBP pair breached an important bearish trend line on the 4 hour chart. This particular break might encourage the Euro buyers in the near term. Moreover, the pair is flirting around the 100 simple moving average (SMA) – 4H, which is around the 50% fib retracement level of the last leg from the 0.7427 high to 0.7015 low. Let’s see how it trades moving ahead.
Intraday Support Level – 0.7180
Intraday Resistance Level – 0.7300
Selling rallies around the 200 MA look like a good option.
A break above the same might call for more gains moving ahead.
On the upside, the EURGBP pair might struggle around the 200 SMA, which is at 0.7340.
