USDCHF

The US dollar weakened a lot Intraday against the Swiss Franc, and most importantly tested a crucial support area which holds the key for the pair in the near term. There is a monster support formed around the 0.9480 level i.e. a major swing area for the pair. It is currently testing the highlighted support area, which if breached might open the doors for more losses in the near term. A break below the same might take it towards the 0.9400 level which can be seen as the next support area. There is a chance of a correction as well, but might face resistance around the 0.9540 level.

Intraday Support Level – 0.9480

Intraday Resistance Level – 0.9540

  • Overall, as long as the pair is above the highlighted trend line it might continue moving higher.

  • A break below the same could ignite more losses in the short term.

On the upside, the 100 SMA holds a lot of importance for the USDCHF pair moving ahead.

  • Buying dips around the bullish trend line looks like a good option.
