EUR/CHF below 1.0900 on data

FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The Swiss franc is depreciating vs. its European peer at the beginning of the week, with EUR/CHF hovering over the 1.0880/85 band so far.

EUR/CHF muted post-releases

The cross has remained mostly apathetic after Retail Sales in the Alpine economy has expanded at an annual pace of 0.2%, matching initial estimates and reverting the previous 0.6% drop.

Further data saw October’s SVME PMI improving to 50.7 vs. 50.2 expected and up from September’s 49.5.

The cross remains on recovery mode in the meantime, coming up from last week’s drop to the area of 1.0740 and with the interim target around 1.0930, recent peaks.

EUR/CHF levels to consider

At the moment the cross is advancing 0.13% at 1.0887 and a breakout of 1.0919 (downtrend from 1.1049) would expose 1.0930 (high Oct.30) and then 1.1049 (high Sep.11). On the other hand, the immediate support aligns at 1.0745 (100-day sma) followed by 1.0739 (low Oct.26) and finally 1.0822 (200-day sma).

Gold falls back to 100-DMA

The uptick in gold ran into offers around USD 1143.08 following which the metal fell back to its 100-DMA at USD 1138.74/Oz levels.
