USDCHF on Friday dropped -0.07% to 0.89670. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling. For the week ending 2024-03-22, the pair rose 1.53% or 135 pips higher.

Looking ahead on Monday, USDCHF looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 0.88212.

As for the new week, our technical outlook looks bullish, immediate upside resistance level at 0.90511 (WR1) with break above could target 0.91353 (WR2). On the downside, we are looking at week low of 0.88212 as an important support. Break below this level could weaken the current bullish momentum. A break above 0.90203 would suggest bullish bias after recent positive movement.

For the month of March, USDCHF is up by 1.38% or 122.3 pips higher.
