USD/CHF at 0.9060: Bullish Targets to 0.9225

Wibest – Franc: Euro and Swiss franc (chf) coins and bills.

Quick Look:

  • USD/CHF at pivot 0.9060: Shows neutral intraday bias, bullish if above 0.9014.
  • Economic Indicators: The US Dollar is robust; Swiss unemployment is stable at 2.3%.
  • Market Outlook: Short-term optimism; critical watch on 0.9243 for medium-term trends.

Today, the USD/CHF pair has been observed at a pi point of 0.9060. Thereby exhibits a neutral intraday bias but maintains a bullish trend assessment overall. Technical analysis highlights the importance of the pair holding above the 0.9014 level to sustain this bullish outlook. The pair hovers near the 55-period exponential moving average (EMA) on the four-hour chart, marked at 0.9099, indicating potential resistance.

Should the currency pair surpass this level decisively, the USD/CHF might aim for bullish targets at 0.9170 and further up at 0.9225. However, strong resistance lies ahead at 0.9243, a breach of which could signal a bullish reversal from the current medium-term bearish outlook. The Fibonacci retracement at 38.2% (0.8883) also offers a vital insight, suggesting underlying support levels that could pivot the price direction.

US Dollar Index at 105.20; Treasury Yields at 4.80% and 4.45%

On the economic front, the US Dollar Index stands robust at 105.20, supported by US Treasury yields with the two-year at 4.80% and the ten-year at 4.45%. Interestingly, soft labour data has recently revived hopes for potential rate cuts in 2024, adding a layer of complexity to currency valuations.

In Switzerland, the unemployment rate remains low at 2.3%, with both non-seasonally adjusted and seasonally adjusted figures showing resilience in the job market. The decrease in total unemployed figures by 1,636 suggests a steady economic environment. Furthermore, a significant event was the speech by Swiss National Bank Chairman Thomas Jordan. In Basel, he discussed the digital tokenization of financial assets. However, no monetary policy hints were provided.

USD/CHF Outlook: Neutral Now, Bullish Above 0.9243

The market sentiment for USD/CHF remains cautiously optimistic in the short term. Especially given the neutral intraday bias and the technical setup favouring a bullish push if certain resistance levels are surpassed. The medium-term outlook could shift dramatically if the pair sustains gains above the critical 0.9243 mark.

Experts advise investors and traders to monitor the pair closely, especially for any shifts in economic indicators or new commentary from central bank officials that might affect the currency dynamics. The interplay between US economic policy expectations and Swiss financial market innovations will likely continue to influence the USD/CHF trajectory in the upcoming weeks.
