Technical analysis of USD/CHF for October 11, 2017


Our both targets which we predicted in yesterday's analysis has been hit. USD/CHF is still under pressure and still expected to move downwards. The pair is capped by a declining trend line since Oct. 9, which confirmed a bearish outlook. The downward momentum is further reinforced by both falling 20-period and 50-period moving averages. The relative strength index is bearish, calling for another downside.

U.S. government bonds showed signs of stabilization following recent declines, with the benchmark 10-year Treasury yield declining to 2.343% from 2.370% in the previous trading session.

The U.S. dollar continued to lose ground to the euro and the British pound which were boosted by upbeat economic data

Hence, below 0.9770, look for a new test with targets at 0.9710 and 0.9695 in extension.
