- USD/CHF probes two-day rebound with mild losses, struggles of late.
- Resistance-turned-support line challenges bears even as 200-HMA restricts immediate upside.
- Bullish MACD signals, sustained break of 50-HMA adding strength to upside bias.
USD/CHF snaps a two-day rebound from the eight-month low as it prints mild losses near 0.9425 during Tuesday’s Asian session.
Even so, the Swiss Franc (CHF) pair defends the previous day’s upside break of a downward-sloping resistance line from December 01, now support. Also keeping the USD/CHF pair buyers hopeful is the quote’s successful trading above the 50-HMA and bullish MACD signals.
That said, the quote’s recovery moves need validation from the 200-HMA hurdle surrounding 0.9440, to keep the USD/CHF buyers hopeful.
Following that, the 50% and the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement levels of the pair’s November 21 to December 02 downside, close to 0.9465 and 0.9495, as well as the 0.9500 threshold, could challenge the USD/CHF bulls.
In a case where the pair remains firmer past 0.9500, multiple hurdles around 0.9500 can test the pair’s further upside.
Alternatively, pullback moves need to break the resistance-turned-support line, close to 0.9410, to tease the USD/CHF bears.
However, the 50-HMA level of 0.9375 and the latest trough surrounding 0.9325, also the lowest levels since April, could challenge the pair’s additional weakness before directing sellers toward the 0.9300 round figure.
