USD/CHF holds above 0.9600

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The Swiss franc is losing ground against the US dollar on Thursday and has erased yesterday's gains. USD/CHF bottomed earlier at 0.9598, slightly above Wednesday’s lows and bounced to the upside.

Recently printed a fresh daily high at 0.9642 and currently trades at 0.9635, up 0.28% for the day, rising for the first time since the beginning of the week.

USD/CHF technical outlook

Karen Jones, Head of FICC Technical Analysis at Commerzbank, notes that as long as USD/CHF holds above 0.9575, where a 3-month support line stand, “we remain unable to rule out a test of the 0.9753 (July 2013 high) and also 0.9840 (2013 high).” Jones mentions that the daily RSI continues to not confirm recent highs, suggesting some profit taking ahead. “Indeed the divergence of the weekly RSI suggests we could well see the upmove halt for a while”.
