USD/CHF Price Analysis: Technical outlook

The daily chart displays the pair as downward biased, but it also appears to have bottomed at around 0.9200. Since December, the USD/CHF pair’s inability to break below 0.9200, forming a triple bottom, opened the door for a leg-up, though low liquidity conditions since the last week keep the USD/CHF pair unable to test the 0.9300 figure. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) remains in bearish territory, capping any rallies toward 0.9300, while the Rate of Change (RoC) displays that selling pressure is waning.

Also, the USD/CHF is forming a falling wedge that it’s bullish. Therefore, the USD/CHF might test the 0/9300 figure, closely followed by a challenge of the 20-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) at around 0.9319. The break above will expose the top-trendline of a descending channel around 0.9370, followed by the 0.9400 figure.
