USD/CHF Price Analysis: Technical outlook
After finding support at around 0.9200, the USD/CHF resumed its uptrend, eyeing a break above Wednesday’s daily high of 0.9366. The USD/CHF dropped towards the top-trend line of a falling wedge, previously broken during the week, turned support. Hence, the major bounced at around 0.9250 and aimed toward a downslope resistance trendline that passed around 0.9370.
If the USD/CHF achieves a daily close above 0.9366, that could open the door for further upside, implying a test of the 0.9400 mark, which, once cleared, would send the USD/CHF aiming towards the 100-day EMA at 0.9445, followed by a test of 0.9500.
As an alternate scenario, the USD/CHF first support would be the 20-day EMA at 0.9322, followed by the 0.9300 figure and the top trendline of a falling wedge that resides around 0.9250.
