USD/CHF Technical Analysis: Slow grind up above parity level – Will it last?

  • USD/CHF is trading in a bull trend above the 200-period simple moving average (SMA) on the 4-hour chart.
  • USD/CHF bulls next objective is to break above 1.0068 (July 13 high). They have the main trend on their side, however, the RSI is slowing down but still above 50 and the Stochastic is already in the overbought zone. All suggesting relative weakness in the current market.
  • Failure to recapture 1.0068 (July 13 high) might lead to a pullback to 1.0000 parity level. Alternatively, a break above 1.0068 should see a retest of 1.0100 current 2018 high.
