Technical Analysis – USDCHF meets strong support at 200-day SMA

  •  USDCHF trades within narrow range

  • RSI indicates an upside movement

USDCHF has been in a tight range over the last ten days with a strong support level at the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at 0.8895. Currently, the market is standing beneath the ascending trend line and the short-term SMAs, signaling more losses. The MACD is holding near its trigger line and beneath the zero level; however, the RSI is ticking north below the 50 level.

Any movement beneath the tough support of 0.8895 could switch the outlook to strongly negative, hitting the 0.8740 barrier ahead of the bottom from January 31 at 0.8550.

But if there’s a rise above the 0.9000 psychological level, the pair could revisit the 20- and the 50-day SMAs at 0.9035 and 0.9070 respectively. A jump beyond the 0.9155 barricade could switch the bias back to positive, re-challenging the seven-month peak of 0.9223.

Summarizing, USDCHF may extend its bearish movement if there is a slip below the 200-day SMA but as long as it is holding above it, the price is lacking direction.
