What can we expect from USDCHF for the new week and what happened on Friday?
USDCHF on Friday rose 0.32% to 0.90866. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling. For the week ending 2023-06-02, the pair rose 0.46% or 41.7 pips higher.
Looking ahead on Monday, USDCHF looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 0.90130.
As for the new week, our technical outlook looks bullish, immediate upside resistance level at 0.91518 (WR1) with break above could target 0.92170 (WR2). On the downside, we are looking at week low of 0.90130 as an important support. Break below this level could weaken the current bullish momentum. A break above 0.91476 would suggest bullish bias after recent positive movement.
For the month of June, USDCHF is down by -0.17% or -15.8 pips lower.
