USD/CNH Technical Analysis: 200-day MA support could be tested after bear flag breakdown

The USD/CNH pair has created a bear flag - a bearish continuation pattern - on the hourly chart. Essentially, it is a pause that often ends up refreshing the preceding bear move.

4-hour chart

A 4-hour close below the lower edge of the flag, currently at 6.7545, would signal a revival of the sell-off from the high of 6.8682 and open up downside toward 6.625 (target as per the measured move method). That target looks far fetched, given the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) is reporting overbought conditions.

That said, the flag breakdown, if confirmed, could yield a test of the 200-day moving average (MA) lined up at 6.7062. Moreover, the hourly and 4-hour RSI are biased bearish, having moved into the undersold territory (back above 30.00) earlier today.
