USD/CHF technical analysis: Bounces off 50-day SMA, eyes on Swiss ZEW data, SNB bulletin

  • USD/CHF takes a U-turn towards 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, 0.9950 resistance confluence.
  • Sustained break of 50-DMA can recall 0.9800 on the chart.
  • September month Swiss ZEW Expectations and SNB’s Q3 Bulletin in the spotlight.
With its recent recovery from the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), the USD/CHF pair takes the bids to 0.9875 while heading into the European session on Wednesday.

38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of April-August declines, at 0.9880, becomes the closest resistance ahead of 0.9900 and 0.9950 confluence region including 200-day SMA and 50% Fibonacci retracement.

In a case where prices manage to close beyond 0.9950 on a daily closing basis, monthly high surrounding 0.9985 and 1.0000 could lure bulls before pushing them to 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of 1.0016.

Meanwhile, a downside break of 50-DMA can fetch the pair to 23.6% Fibonacci retracement close to 0.9800 whereas 0.9720 and 0.9700 may please sellers afterward.

On the fundamental front, traders will take clues from the Swiss ZEW Expectations (prior -37.5) and third quarter (Q3) bulletin from the Swiss National Bank.

Investors will seek clues of the SNB’s latest hawkish statements from the bulletin to strengthen the Swiss Franc (CHF).
