Forex: USD/CHF testing the 0.9300 barrier

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The USD/CHF has traded sideways at the 0.9300 barrier in recent moments during European trading Friday. Having tested this barrier, also its first calculated support, the cross is now incurring a loss of -0.26% at the time of writing.

Mataf.net analysts point to supports at 0.9297, ahead of 0.9270, and finally 0.9251. On the ascension, a break above 0.9343 will initiate resistances at 0.9362 and finally 0.9389.

“The USD/CHF didn’t show any big move since yesterday, while stability above SMA-20 and Fibonacci level is still seen on the four-hour graph. Fibonacci of 38.2% represents a strong technical obstacle and thus, we remain neutral over intraday basis, noting that technical indicators don’t give of clear signs.” notes the ICN.com analyst team.
