Technical Analysis of USD/CHF for May 24, 2016
USD/CHF is expected to trade with a bullish bias. The pair failed to break its nearest resistance at 0.9925 yesterday and is currently posting some consolidations. Even though a continuation of the consolidation in the current stage cannot be ruled out, its extent should be limited. As long as 0.9860 is not broken, look for further advance to 0.9945 and 0.9995 in extension.
The pair is trading above its pivot point. It is likely to trade in a wider range as long as it remains above its pivot point. Therefore, long positions are recommended with the first target at 0.9945 and the second one at 0.9995. In the alternative scenario, short positions are recommended with the first target at 0.9805 if the price moves below its pivot points. A break of this target is likely to push the pair further downwards, and one may expect the second target at 0.9775. The pivot point is at 0.9860.
Resistance levels: 0.9945, 0.9980, 1.0125
Support levels: 0.9805, 0.9775, 0.9750
