USD/CHF

USDCHF’s pullback from 0.9935 can’t be considered as a sign of its strength unless the pair clears 1.0005-10 horizontal-region on a daily closing basis, which in-turn highlights the importance of 50-day SMA level of 0.9920 and 0.9900, including 200-day SMA as immediate supports. However, pair’s declines past-0.9900 might not hesitate recalling the 0.9860 and the 0.9800 on chart. In case prices rally beyond 1.0010, the 1.0040 and the 1.0085 could quickly appear as quote. Additionally, pair’s successful rise above 1.0085 can flash 1.0130 on buyers’ radar.

EUR/CHF

Unlike USDCHF, the EURCHF bounces off the near-term support-line, at 1.1270 now, which in-turn highlights the importance of 1.1315 and the 1.1355-60 resistance-region. Given the pair’s sustained rally after 1.1360, the 1.1390, the 1.1405 and the 1.1435 are likely consecutive resistances to gain market attention. Meanwhile, break of 1.1270 could trigger the pair’s dip to 1.1240 and then to 1.1210 whereas the 1.1190 and the 1.1180 might entertain sellers then after.

AUD/CHF

Failure to clearly cross the 50-day SMA seem dragging the AUDCHF to 0.7030 support, breaking which 0.6960 and the 0.6930 can offer intermediate halts during its drop to 0.6880-70 area. If at all the pair keep trading southwards under 0.6870, the early-month low of 0.6675 may become Bears’ favorite. Alternatively, 50-day SMA level of 0.7130 may restrict the pair’s adjacent rise prior to escalating its recovery to 0.7190 and the 200-day SMA level of 0.7240. Though, eight-month old resistance-line, at 0.7325, could challenge the Bulls past-0.7240, if not then 0.7400 might please them.

CAD/CHF

CADCHF still follows the “Rising Wedge” break indicating the pair’s slump to 0.7340-45 support-zone but 0.7415 & 0.7375 can act as buffers. Should prices slid below 0.7340, the 0.7300, the 0.7245 and the 0.7175 may be aimed if holding short positions. On the upside, 0.7490 and the 0.7515 could confine the pair’s immediate rise. Given the pair’s ability to surpass the 0.7515 barrier, the 0.7550 and the 0.7585 may lure the optimists.
