USD/CHF Price Analysis: Minor bounce likely on indicator divergence

  • USD/CHF's hourly chart shows a bullish RSI divergence. 
  • The overall bias remains bearish with the pair holding well below 0.9762.

While the path of least resistance for the USD/CHF pair is to the downside, a break lower toward 0.96 could be preceded by a minor bounce, as the hourly chart indicator is reporting a bullish divergence of the relative strength index (RSI). 

A bullish divergence occurs when a lower low on the price chart is accompanied by a higher low on the indicator. 

The divergence seen on the hourly chart indicates scope for a bounce to the descending trendline resistance at 0.9688. A violation there could bring additional gains above 0.97. 

A rejection at the trendline hurdle will yield a sustained move below Tuesday's low of 0.9665.

The overall bias will remain bearish as long as the spot remains below 0.9762, keeping lower highs setup on the daily chart intact.
