According to the previous events, the USD/CHF pair is still moving between the levels of 0.9582 and 0.9710; for that, we expect a range of 128 pips (0.9710 - 0.9582) at least.
  • On the one-hour chart, immediate resistance is seen at 0.9710, which coincides with a ratio of 61.8% Fibonacci retracement. Currently, the price is moving in a bullish channel. This is confirmed by the RSI indicator signaling that we are still in a bullish trending market. The price is still above the moving average (100), Therefore, if the trend is able to break out through the first resistance level of 0.9710, we should see the pair climbing towards the daily resistance at 0.9752 to test it. It would also be wise to consider where to place stop loss; this should be set below the second support of 0.9550.
