USD/CHF plays tag with 0.9380 resistance area

FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/CHF opened the day at 0.9365, touched 0.9375 session high in early Europe, before retreating to current levels at 0.9350.

Offsetting the NFP

The pair is following the steps of USD/JPY with the only exception – it has posted only yearly highs so far. The Swissy came closer to a strong psychological level at 0.94, and as the breakout is not an easy task without specific catalyst, the current retreat is not surprising. However, the released tonight US Jobless Claims may give the needed fuel in case of new positive surprises that may offset the negative sentiments left by the recent disappointing NFP. The next target to the upside may be found at 0.9403.

What are today’s key USD/CHF levels?

Today's central pivot point can be found at 0.9361 with support below at 0.9324, 0.9282 and 0.9245, with resistance above at 0.9403, 0.9440, and 0.9482. Hourly Moving Averages are largely bullish, with the 200SMA at 0.9273 and the daily 20EMA bullish at 0.9211. Hourly RSI is bullish at 54.
