EUR/USD Technical Analysis Euro Dollar

A low was formed near 1.1772 on FXOpen and the pair is now consolidating losses. An immediate resistance on the upside is near the 1.1795 level.

It is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the 1.1875 high to 1.1772 low. If there is an upside break above the 1.1800 resistance zone, the price could recover steadily towards the 1.1825 resistance zone.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the 1.1875 high to 1.1772 low is also near 1.1825. Any more gains might call for a test of 1.1850.

On the downside, there is a major support forming near the 1.1770 zone. A downside break below the 1.1770 support could start another decline. The next major support could be near the 1.1710 level.

USD/CHF Technical Analysis

The US Dollar formed a strong support above the 0.9130 level against the Swiss franc. As a result, the USD/CHF pair started a fresh increase above the 0.9150 resistance.

The pair broke the 0.9165 resistance and the 50 hourly simple moving average. It even traded above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the 0.9267 high to 0.9132 low.

There was also a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance near 0.9168 on the hourly chart. It is now trading near the 50% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the 0.9267 high to 0.9132 low.

If there is a clear break above the 0.9200 resistance zone, the pair could start a steady increase. The next major resistance is near the 0.9220. A successful break above the 0.9220 resistance could open the doors for a move towards 0.9265. Any more gains could lead the pair towards 0.9300.

On the downside, the pair might find bids near the 0.9165 level and the 50 hourly SMA. Any more losses could lead the pair towards the 0.9135 support zone.

If the bulls fail to protect the 0.9135 support zone, there is a risk of a larger decline. In the stated case, the pair may even decline below the 0.9100 support zone.
