EUR/USD Technical Analysis

This week, the Euro made a few attempts to clear the 1.1800 resistance zone against the US Dollar. The EUR/USD pair failed to extend gains and started a fresh decline.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis Euro Dollar

The pair even broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.1697 swing low to 1.1807 high. More importantly, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support near 1.1740 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.

The pair is now trading below the 1.1750 support level. An initial support is near the 1.1720 level or the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.1697 swing low to 1.1807 high.

The next major support is near the 1.1700 zone, below which the pair might accelerate lower towards the 1.1650 and 1.1620 levels. Conversely, the pair might start a fresh increase above the 1.1750 resistance.

The first major resistance is near the 1.1765 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. A clear break above the 1.1765 level might lead the pair back towards the main 1.1800 resistance level in the coming sessions.

USD/CHF Technical Analysis

After a steady decline, the US Dollar found support near the 0.9130 area against the Swiss franc. The USD/CHF pair traded as low as 0.9133 and recently started a fresh upward move.

There was a break above the 0.9150 resistance level. The pair even broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.9296 high to 0.9133 low. Moreover, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance near 0.9175 on the hourly chart.

USD/CHF Technical Analysis Dollar Swiss Francur

The pair is now trading nicely above the 0.9180 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The next resistance could be near the 0.9200 level.

The first major resistance is near the 0.9215 level since it is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.9296 high to 0.9133 low. A clear break above the 0.9200 resistance and follow up move above 0.9215 might open the doors for more gains in the near term.

The next key resistance is near the 0.9255 level. If there is a downside correction, the pair might find support near the 0.9165 level or the 50 hourly simple moving average.

The next major support is near the 0.9150 level, below which there is a risk of a bearish wave towards the 0.9100 support level.
