USDCHF on Thursday dropped -0.15% to 0.90596. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is rising in overbought zone.
Updated daily direction for USDCHF looks bearish as the pair posted lower in Thursday trading session.
Looking ahead for the day, immediate support level is at S1 0.90284 with break below could see further selling pressure towards S2 at 0.89971. To the upside, with the current momentum bearish, we prefer to look at breakout of the recent daily high of 0.90687 as a potential indicator of buying interest. Failure to break the resistance level would continue to echo bearish sentiment. A close below 0.90173 would indicate selling pressure.
For the week to-date, take note that USDCHF is bullish as the pair continued to trade higher and is up by 0.42% over the past few days.
