Looking ahead on Monday, USDCHF looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 0.85105.

As for the new week, our technical outlook looks bullish, immediate upside resistance level at 0.87534 (WR1) with break above could target 0.88258 (WR2). On the downside, we are looking at week low of 0.85105 as an important support. Break below this level could weaken the current bullish momentum. A break above 0.87044 would suggest bullish bias after recent positive movement.

For the month of January, USDCHF is up by 3.21% or 270 pips higher.
