USD/CHF is expected to trade in a higher range. It is supported by the broadly firmer dollar undertone (ICE spot dollar index last 88.00 versus 87.67 early Thursday) as oil prices plunge after OPEC’s decision to stick to its existing target for oil production rather than cutting it in response to tumbling oil prices and ultra-loose Swiss National Bank’s monetary policy. But USD/CHF gains are tempered by the positions adjustment ahead of the weekend.
Daily chart is mixed as MACD is bearish but stochastics is neutral.
The pair is trading above its pivot point. It is likely to trade in a higher range as far as it remains above its pivot point. As long as the price is keeping above its pivot point, a long position is recommended with the first target at 0.9670 and the second target at 0.970. In an alternative scenario, if the price moves below its pivot points, short positions are recommended with the first target at 0.9575. A break of this target would push the pair further downwards and one may expect the second target at 0.9545. The pivot point is at 0.9610.
