USD/CNH Technical Analysis: looks north after falling channel breakout and weak China data

  • The USD/CNH pair is currently trading at 6.8911 - up 0.19 percent on the day - having witnessed a falling channel breakout on the hourly chart yesterday.
  • Notably, the already bullish technical setup on the hourly chart has been bolstered further by the dismal China data - November industrial production came in at 5.4 percent year-on-year, missing the estimated print of 5.9 percent by a big margin. On similar lines, retail sales also missed estimates by printing at 8.1 percent.
  • The big miss on retail sales, in particular, is a cause for concern as it indicates that domestic demand isn't strong enough to compensate for the slowdown in exports (due to trade war).
  • The USD/CNH pair, therefore, could continue to gain altitude.
