EUR/CHF: fertile fields of volatility
Information is not investment advice
EUR/CHF is not the most popular pair. Nevertheless, it’s one of the most interesting ones to trade. Primarily – due to its sheer volatility that grants vast spaces for profit-taking. If traded with caution, of course. Movements as fierce and frequent as these are rarely seen among other pairs so if you like the picture and want to step in – make sure you have a solid strategy and trading tactic first.
As you can see, from July to September, the pair has been mostly trading within the channel 1.0730 – 1.0800. But it’s never been dormant or passive – basically every week it has been visiting both sides of the channel.
Now, EUR/CHF trades at the lower side of the upper channel 1.0800 – 1.0840. The fact that in entered that zone already tells a lot. If bulls press on, prepare to see 1.0840 crossed. If this happens, the next upside target will be 1.1000. Otherwise, 1.0670 stays as primary support to watch.
This week, there are a few high-probability trade ideas I'd like to recommend to you. Trading these setups, be sure to implement a proper risk management approach.
On Thursday, the 2nd of February, the Bank of England will publish its report concerning interest rates and inflation data for the Eurozone. Professionals and investors anticipate that Andrew Bailey’s lead team of policy makers will likely raise interest rates to 4%; the highest in over a decade, for the tenth time in a row.
The first FOMC meeting comes after a buildup of anticipation from traders and investors alike, as the markets await what posture the Fed will take regarding the interest rates; would there be a hike or a cut in interest rates? Recall that the Federal Open Market Committee had previously ended the year 2022 with a 50bps hike, and an indication from Powell, the committee chairman, that the Fed could consider raising interest rates by 75bps in the course of the year 2023.
