What can we expect from USDCHF today?

USDCHF on Thursday rose 0.4% to 0.86781. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is rising.

Updated daily direction for USDCHF looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above 0.86425 (S1).

Looking ahead today, to see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of last daily high of 0.86940 or trades above daily pivot 0.86683. Break above could target R1 at 0.87038. While to the downside, we are looking at 0.86425 (S1) and daily low of 0.86327 as support levels. USDCHF need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A break above 0.86940 may suggest continuation after recent positive movement.

For the week to-date, take note that USDCHF is bullish as the pair continued to trade higher and is up by 1.7% over the past few days.
