Technical analysis of USD/CHF for August 07, 2017


The target which we predicted in yesterday's analysis has been hit. The pair is still expected to trade in higher range. The pair posted a pullback from 0.9765 (the high of August 4), and is still trading above its rising 50-period moving average. The relative strength index is mixed with bullish bias. Even though a continuation of the consolidation cannot be ruled out, its extent should be limited.

The US Labor Department reported an addition of 209,000 nonfarm payrolls in July, more than +180,000 expected. Average hourly earnings for private-sector workers increased 9 cents in July to $26.36 an hour, the largest monthly increase since October. For the fourth straight month, the wages increased 2.5% on a year-on-year basis. Besides, the jobless rate declined to 4.3% from 4.4% in June.

To sum up, while the price holds above 0.9700, look a further advance to 0.9765 and 0.9785 in extension.
