You can see that the price has retested the lower median line (LML) of the ascending pitchfork, confirming it as dynamic support as well. Actually, USD/CHF has printed a major bullish engulfing on the confluence area formed at the intersection of the lower median lines (LML).

Confirming the ascending pitchfork, the USD/CHF pair signaled a potential upside towards the median line (ML).

DXY technical analysis

DXY 4-hour price chart
DXY 4-hour price chart

DXY almost reaches the descending pitchfork’s upper median line (UML), which is seen as an upside target. It was somehow expected to increase after failing to close below 38.2% and after jumping above the median line (ml).

Making a valid breakout above the upper median line (UML) and resuming its growth could help the USD/CHF resume its growth. On the other hand, DXY’s potential drop from the upper median line (UML) may signal a USD/CHF drop.
