USDCHF Trading In A Temporary Correction; More Upside Is Expected

Gregor Horvat

On the Daily chart of USDCHF we are looking at a higher degree complex correction, a three wave A-B-C rise of wave IV, that seems to be in action since end of December of 2014. That said as we can see, pair completed a triangle correction in the connecting wave B and made a sharp reversal higher, above the sub-wave D swing. As such we now believe price may unfold a five-wave movement within the final wave C, before making a higher degree impulsive drop towards new lows. Ideally price will make a run towards the 1.0700/1.0750. more…

Elliott Wave Analysis On USDJPY And USDCHF

Gregor Horvat

FX market is moving sideways, with a corrective price move shown on some several USD pairs, so USDJPY can be in a similar position. As we see on the chart, price structure from the last few days looks very tight, meaning it can still be trading corrective within wave four as part of an uptrend. Ideally this correction is a running triangle, that is pointing up into wave v of C towards the 105.00 projected area, while 102.77 support is not breached. more…

USDCHF Triple Bar Rejection At Resistance

Nenad Kerkez

The USD/CHF is bound in a ranging market just as EUR/USD. As we could see in this article, the EUR/USD is meant to go up (as it is going) and that normally means USD/CHF down due to a negative high correlation.

Technically we can spot a triple pin bar rejection off the H3 resistance and it looks like a failed inverted head and shoulders. Due to a range that USD/CHF is currently in we might see a good r:r if the pair proceeds down. 0.9940-50 is the zone where we could see a rejection and as long as the pair is below 0.9975 targets are 0.9900 and 0.9870. Additionally traders should pay attention to ADP today.

USD/CHF Hits A 5-Month Low As The SNB Stands Pat

Matt Weller

At the start of the week, we highlighted today’s Swiss National Bank meeting as a potential under-the-radar event risk that many traders were overlooking. As we suspected, the central bank did not make any changes to monetary policy, but did take the opportunity to reiterate its review that the Swiss franc is “still significantly overvalued.” For Switzerland’s heavily export-oriented economy, the value of the currency is one of the most important economic indicators, and the lack of upward pressure more…

USDCHF Making A Reversal

Gregor Horvat

USDCHF has traced 5 waves up, which we see as the start of a new upside trend from latest lows. This pair touched psychological level 1.000 and found resistance there. Current development we see as a corrective three wave pullback with support around 0.9840 levels, from where we expect to see further continuation to higher levels. more…

USD/CHF: Why Parity May Prove To Be A Near-Term Top

Matt Weller

One of this week’s biggest themes has been the gradual unwind of last week’s excessive moves across global markets, and USD/CHF remains one of the best candidates for reversion. From late January’s high near 1.0200, USD/CHF collapsed nearly 600 pips to the mid-.9600s last week. While the pair did slice through its previous bullish trend line last week, the unit has rallied all the way back to test the underside of the broken trend line once as of writing. more…

USDCHF Buy Into Dips

Nenad Kerkez

While we are patiently waiting for FOMC meeting we need to know that interest rate differential between US and Switzerland definitely favors the dollar. Having a record unemployment rate at 5.1 % FOMC is a step closer to rate hike and recent Yellen comments suggested that China turmoil had no significant impact on FED’s plans about the hike. more…
