  • USD/CHF has turned lower from the key resistance area. 
  • The short duration charts show scope for a pullback. 

USD/CHF’s short duration technical charts are pointing to bull fatigue. 

While the hourly chart relative strength index has diverged in favor of the bears, the 4-hour chart has breached an ascending trendline. 

The pair could pull back to the ascending 50-hour moving average (MA), currently at 0.9730. If that level holds, the bulls could challenge the recent high of 0.9767 (Jan. 29 high). The area around 0.9767 has proved a tough nut to crack twice in the last four weeks. So, a close above 0.9767 is needed to invite stronger buying pressure. 

On the other hand, acceptance under the 50-hour MA of 0.9730 would expose the 10-day MA at 0.9704.

At press time, the pair is trading at 0.9743, representing marginal losses on the day. The pair ended higher for the fourth straight day on Thursday.
