USD/CHF Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 0.9963; (P) 0.9978; (R1) 1.0003;
USD/CHF’s recovery from 0.9908 is still in progress but upside is limited below 1.0006 minor resistance. Intraday bias stays neutral first. On the upside, break of 1.0006 minor support will argue that the pull back from 1.0128 has completed. Intraday bias will be turned back to the upside for retesting 1.1028. However, on the downside, break of 38.2% retracement of 0.9541 to 1.0128 at 0.9904 will target 0.9848 key support level.
In the bigger picture, the pullback from 1.0067 has completed at 0.9541 already. And rise from 0.9186 is likely resuming. Firm break of 1.0067 will pave the way to retest 1.0342 key resistance. We’d be cautious on strong resistance from there to limit upside to bring another medium term fall to extend long term range trading. However, break of 0.9848 near term support will dampen this view and bring deeper decline back to 0.9541 support and possibly below.
GBP/USD Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.2782; (P) 1.2823; (R1) 1.2849;
Intraday bias in GBP/USD remains neutral as it’s bounded in range of 1.2764/2927. On the upside, above 1.2927 will turn bias to the upside for 1.3071 resistance first. On the downside, break of 1.2764 will extend the fall from 1.3174 to 1.2661 key support level. Overall, price actions from 1.2661 are viewed as a consolidation pattern. Even in case of strong rebound, upside should be limited by 1.3316 fibonacci level to bring down trend resumption eventually.
In the bigger picture, whole medium term rebound from 1.1946 (2016 low) should have completed at 1.4376 already, after rejection from 55 month EMA. The structure and momentum of the fall from 1.4376 argues that it’s resuming long term down trend. And this will be the preferred case as long as 38.2% retracement of 1.4376 to 1.2661 at 1.3316 holds. However, firm break of 1.3316 would bring stronger rebound to 61.8% retracement at 1.3721. And, the eventual depth of the fall from 1.4376, and the chance of hitting 1.1946 low, will depend on the strength of the interim corrective rebound from 1.2661.
