What to Watch: USD/CHF

USD/CHF 1-hour Forex Chart

USD/CHF 1-hour Forex Chart

The Greenback has been unwinding most of its recent gains, as traders are likely bracing themselves ahead of the top-tier U.S. reports this week.

For today, we’ve got the advance GDP release, which is expected to show a rebound of 2.3% for Q3. This follows the previous quarter’s 0.6% contraction and might be enough to calm recession fears.

Stronger than expected results might bring bullish vibes back for USD/CHF. But if bulls are unable to sustain the rally, the Fib retracement levels might attract selling pressure.

In particular, the 50% to 61.8% Fib levels might be enough to keep gains in check since these line up with a former support zone.

As you can see from the chart above, the 100 SMA crossed below the 200 SMA to suggest that the path of least resistance is to the downside. In other words, resistance levels are more likely to hold than to break.

Stochastic is still pulling higher for now, reflecting a return in buying momentum, and the oscillator has room to climb before reaching the overbought zone.

Turning lower would confirm that sellers are back in action and could take this pair back to the swing low near the .9850 minor psychological mark.
