For the new week, our technical outlook is mixed. To see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of week high of 0.88926 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 0.88336. On the downside, we are looking at week low 0.87776 or 0.87746 (WS1) as immediate support level. USDCHF need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A break above 0.88926 would suggest bullish bias after recent positive movement.
