USD/CHF Technical Analysis: Sellers remain in control, sustained weakness below parity mark awaited

   •  The pair extended its recent retracement slide from near four-month tops and remained under some selling pressure for the fifth session in the previous six.

   •  The pair has now moved on the verge of breaking through the key parity mark, also coinciding with 61.8% Fibonacci level of the 0.9926-1.0125 recent upsurge. 

   •  The fact that the pair remains well below its important intraday moving averages - 50, 100 & 200-hour SMAs, clearly points to further near-term depreciating move.

   •  Bearish oscillators on hourly/daily charts further add credence to the negative outlook and set the stage for a move towards testing the 0.9975 horizontal support.

   •  A follow-through selling has the potential to continue dragging the pair further towards challenging the very important 200-day SMA, around the 0.9920 region.
