Swissy below 0.9630 barrier

USDCHF, H4 and Daily

USDCHF  fell to 0.9636 from session highs of 0.9677, unable to sustain Friday’s gain. The cross has been trending downwards since mid August, while during September it has been showing more of a ranging market as it bounces from 0.9634 to 0.9767.  Today’s price action suggests that the downtrend remains in play, as the pair broke below 5-month low at 0.9634

Technically-wise, the 3 consecutive bearish candles last week along with the failure on Friday to return at least 50% of the losses, is further increasing the negative bias of the pair. In short-term, RSI and Stochastics suggest that the price is losing positive momentum as both signal that the price is moving lower towards oversold barrier, with further space to the downside; the former has drifted near 31, while the latter is also just a breath before entering oversold area, with the white %K line at 24. MACD lines are increasing below signal line. Nevertheless, the recent downwards move combines the break of the latest down fractal and the extension of the lower Bollinger Bands further to the downside, something that strongly supports the bearish intraday outlook for USDCHF.

Should the session candle close below the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the upleg from 0.9186 to 1.0067, the price might find immediate support at the mid of 50.0% and 61.8% Fib. level at 0.9575, in which the price found Support in the mid April. Below that comes the 0.9500-0.9520 area, with the latter the 61.8% Fibonacci of 0.9520. 

Alternatively, a reversal to the upside could retest today’s peak at 0.9677  before targeting the 38.2%% Fibonacci of 0.9730.
