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…

GBP/CHF Could Surge As SNB Responds To ECB’S Policy; UK GDP Eyed

Fawad Razaqzada

It has been a slow day in the FX markets today after last week’s ECB-inspired sell-off in the euro had raised volatility across many currency pairs. But one currency that has caught some attention today is the Swiss franc, which has been sold heavily in response to comments from the Swiss National Bank’s Vice President. In a Swiss newspaper on Sunday Mr Fritz Zurbruegg said that the SNB would be analysing 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…

USDCHF: Four-Decade Low in US Jobless Claims Could Overcome Bearish Technicals

Matt Weller

Last week, we highlighted a confluence of key resistance levels in the .9600-50 zone on USDCHF (See “USDCHF: Two Swiss-Cheese Style Holes on the Way to Parity” for more). As anticipated, the pair edged up into that area and has since turned lower to fall over 100 pips from the high set earlier this week. Now, the question on traders’ minds is “Where will the pair head next?” more…
