Other than the fundamentals, the pair’s sustained trading below 200-week SMA favors the sellers.

As a result, the quote drops towards filling the early May 2019 gap between 6.7339 and 6.8102.

In a case where the USD/CNH prices remain downbeat past-6.7339, 50% and 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the pair’s 2018-19 rise, respectively around 6.7175 and 6.6035 will gain market attention.

Meanwhile, an upside clearance of a 200-week SMA level of 6.8118 will trigger recovery moves towards the January month’s low near 6.8455.
