What can we expect from USDCHF for the new week and what happened on Friday?

USDCHF on Friday dropped -0.03% to 0.87740. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling. For the week ending 2024-03-08, the pair dropped -0.63% or -55.2 pips lower.

Looking ahead on Monday, USDCHF looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 0.87293.

For the new week, our technical outlook looks bearish, immediate support level is at 0.87134 (WS1) with break below could see further selling pressure towards 0.86529 (WS2). For potential buyers, as the current momentum is bearish, we prefer to look at firm break of the week high of 0.88663 as an important indicator of buying interest. Failure to break the resistance level would continue to echo bearish sentiment. A close below week low of 0.87293 would indicate selling pressure.

For the month of March, USDCHF is down by -0.8% or -70.7 pips lower.
