EUR/CHF may form a triple top
Information is not investment advice
For 3 weeks in a row, EUR/CHF tried to close above the resistance line connecting October and February highs and failed. If we study the price action at the daily chart, we’ll see a pattern that resembles a “triple top”. To sell the euro it’s necessary to have the confirmation in the form of the pair going below the 200-day MA at 1.1340. The next levels to watch on the downside will then be 1.1320 (50% Fibo retracement of the March-April advance) and 1.1280 (61.2% retracement). The pair needs to return above 1.14 for bulls to regain strength.
EUR/USD fell below 1.1850 after reaching 1.1920 on Monday. The pair consolidated after the initial bearish move.
USD/CAD remains within a downtrend. As a result, selling the pair as it turns down from resistance is the best strategy. Support lies at 1.3125.
