In spite of bouncing from the three-week long support-line, USDCHF couldn’t sustain its U-turn and is likely to revisit the 0.9860 rest-point, breaking which 0.9825 & 0.9800 could come back on the chart. Though, the 0.9770 horizontal-line may confine the pair’s declines past-0.9800, if not then 0.9755 & 0.9700 can appear in the sellers radar. In case the quote surpasses 0.9900 immediate resistance, a month old downward slanting TL, at 0.9955, followed by the 0.9985 and the 1.0000 round-figure, might please buyers. Moreover, pair’s successful trading beyond 1. ...
Break of three-month old descending trend-line, also encompassing 100-day SMA, signal brighter chances for the USDCHF’s further upside towards 0.9945-50 multiple resistance area. However, a bit broader downward slanting TL, at 1.0000 psychological magnet, can confine the pair’s advances past-0.9950, if not then 1.0040 & 1.0070 may gain traders’ attention. In case the quote continue rising beyond 1.0070, the 1.0100 & 1.0170 could entertain the Bulls. Alternatively, the 0. ...
One wonders how the Eurozone will achieve higher core inflation if monetary policy slowly tightens and the economic activity slows. Should the Euro appreciate and get back above, say, the 1.20 mark against the greenback, it will be even harder for inflation to accelerate.
A month old descending trend-line, at 0.9685, is likely to challenge the USDCHF’s short-covering moves from 0.9600, if not then the pair’s rise to 0.9710 and the 200-day SMA level of 0.9740 seem imminent. However, the 0.9780-90 area could restrict the pair’s upside past-0.9740, failing to which might propel prices to 0.9850-55 and the 0.9900 resistance-levels. Meanwhile, the 0.9600 and a downward slanting support-line, at 0.9580 now, can limit the quote’s immediate declines. In case the pair refrains to respect 0.9580 mark, the 0.9560, the 0.9520 and the 0. ...
EURCHF breaks the short-term neckline of the small H&S formation, together with the lower line of the mid-term wedge pattern. In addition to that, EURCHF is bouncing from the long-term horizontal resistance. The price is surging and most recently, broke the ultimate horizontal resistance.
First one is the Currency market, with the EURCHF. Most recently, EURCHF broke the lower line of the wedge and the neckline of the H&S formation. With this, we should be aiming lower to the long-term up trendline and the horizontal support on the 66.6 USD/bbl.
Unless breaking seven-week old ascending trend-line, at 0.9890 now, the USDCHF is less likely to extend its recent pullback towards 0.9850 and the 0.9820 support-levels. Alike USDCHF, the EURCHF’s downside is also capped by the immediate support, herein it is the 1.1595-85 zone, that may trigger the pair’s U-turn towards nearby TL resistance figure of 1.1615. GBPCHF’s recovery from nine-month old ascending trend-line may support the pair to aim for the 1.3125 and the 50-day SMA level of 1.3165 but a downward slanting TL stretched since April can confine its further upside around 1.3210.
One of the most technical setups can be seen on the USDCHF, where Friday ended with a bearish shooting star pattern.

In the smaller time frames, that shooting star is additionally shaped like the head and shoulders formation, which strengtheners the sell signal.
The European Central Bank president, Mario Draghi was speaking at the banking conference event in Portugal last week. The main take away from the speech was that the ECB president promised that the ECB would take time to hike interest rates.
The breakaway gap in the Euro (in this article, we use “Euro” to refer to the currency pair EUR/USD) on the 24th of April 2017 on the back of positive first round French election results that weekend broke through a resistance trendline from 2014, a 5-month ascending triangle and the 200-day moving average. It heralded a reversal in the trend of the Euro and what followed was a near 1-year rally that took the price from 1.087 to a high of 1.2558, a rise of 15.5%. After consolidating in a symmetrical triangle, the Euro broke to the downside and has been falling for over a month now.
Though there still remains a significant amount of uncertainty, recent populist movements in Italy have created the possibility of ending the national use of the Euro. Naturally, as a nation of over 60 million and the third largest nation in the Eurozone (after Germany and France), Italy’s abandonment of the Euro could spark a wide variety of far-reaching changes.
The start of the week’s trading took place around excitement in the political situation in Italy and the unsuccessful attempts of Crude Oil to rebound.
Early Monday trading has seen the downward pressure continue for oil prices. Italian stocks rise on prospects of new elections, and Italian bonds strengthen as the populist coalition fails to form a government.
The Ecofin meetings are a major event in the EU, with leaders from all member states attending each time that they are held. How could the meeting affect the euro?
Considering USDCHF’s latest U-turn from near 50-day SMA, the pair seems all set to challenge the 0.9565-70 area with 0.9535 being immediate resistance to tackle. In case if the pair manage to surpass the 0.9570 mark on a daily closing basis, the 0.9600 & the 0.9640 are likely following numbers to please the buyers ahead of questioning their strength by 200-day SMA level of 0.9660, adjacent to 0.9665-70 horizontal-line. Given the pair’s inability to sustain latest recovery, the 0.9455 and the 50-day SMA level of 0.9415 might entertain short-term sellers. ...
The Euro has continued to face headwinds versus the U.S Dollar short term. While range trading may prevail today, this will vanish as the U.S Fed’s monetary policy decision draws closer on Wednesday.
The Euro has been able to achieve noteworthy gains the past two days against the U.S Dollar, but trading volumes remain light and strong resistance looms ahead.
Wednesday is a FED day and all investors are waiting for the rate decision, statement and the economic projections from the FOMC. Obviously, all that is based on the technical analysis and it all can be easily canceled and declined by the FOMC. The support line is under the pressure recently and the buyers cannot create a bounce.
