USD/CNH Technical Analysis: Break below 100-day EMA would bolster the bearish setup

The USD/CNH pair could suffer deeper losses if the immediate support at 6.8857 is breached, technical charts indicate.

Daily chart

  • As seen above, the pair suffered an ascending triangle breakdown last week, signaling a continuation of the sell-off from the Nov. 30 high of 6.9564.
  • The 5- and 10-day exponential moving averages (EMAs) are trending south, indicating a bearish setup.
  • Further, the falling channel indicates the bears are in a commanding position.

All-in-all, the path of least resistance is on the downside. As a result, the 100-day EMA support of 6.8857 could be breached soon. Moreover, that would only bolster the already bearish technical setup, opening doors for 6.8043 (23.6% Fib R of March 2018 low/November high).

A falling channel breakout, if confirmed, would signal a bullish reversal.
