GBP/CHF supported by 100-DMA ahead OF BOE minutes

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The GBP/CHF pair found support at its 100-DMA located at 1.4808 ahead of the Bank of England rate decision and minutes release.

Hovers around 1.4850

The demand for the CHF weakened somewhat after the European equity markets recovered from the early wobble. Nevertheless, the stock markets appear nervous and that keeps the losses in the safe haven CHF restricted.

The focus now would be on the Bank of England (BOE) rate decision and minutes release. The investors would watch out for the BOE MPC vote split on interest rates.

GBP/CHF Technical Levels

At 1.4845, the immediate support is located at 1.4808 (100-DMA), under which the losses could be extended to 1.4672 (Oct 2 low). A break below the same would expose 200-DMA located at 1.46. On the higher side, a break above 1.4926 (previous day’s high) is needed to test the 50-DMA stationed at 1.4964.

USD/CHF drops below 50-DMA

The broad based USD selling in Europe, coupled with an early wobble in the European stock markets pushed the USD/CHF pair below its 50-DMA located at 0.9701 levels.
