USD/CHF: levels for trading
Information is not investment advice
The decline of USD/CHF from February highs to March lows was epic. The pair reached support at 0.9185 (2018 low) and turned up on the W1 (notice that the reversal candlestick at this timeframe still hasn’t been formed) and the D1. The next obstacles on the upside lie in the 0.9400/15 area and at 0.9440 (38.2% Fibonacci). The advance above the latter is needed to open the way up to 0.9515 (50% Fibo).
The United States will release PPI figures at 14:30 MT time. According to the forecast, the data will worsen in comparison with the previous release. If this scenario turns out to be true, USD/CHF will test support at 0.9325/00. The next support is at 0.9245. Higher than expected numbers and confidence in the efficiency of the anti-coronavirus measures are needed to push the USD above the mentioned resistance levels.
