Daily Analysis For USD/CHF 13-06-2023

USD/CHF Analysis


Key Points: -

·       The USD/CHF pair is facing challenges in building upon its significant gains achieved in the last two days.


·       Uncertainty surrounding the possibility of a rate hike by the Federal Reserve is keeping USD bulls cautious and limiting further upside potential.


·       Additionally, traders appear hesitant to make aggressive moves as they await the release of the important US Consumer Price Index (CPI) report.

Today's Scenario: -


During the Asian session on Tuesday, the USD/CHF pair is trading within a narrow range below the 0.9100 level, consolidating the strong gains it achieved in the past two days.


The USD is facing pressure as expectations grow that the Federal Reserve (Fed) will likely refrain from raising interest rates this month. This is acting as a hindrance for the USD/CHF pair. Several influential Fed officials have recently reiterated market expectations of a pause in the central bank's year-long tightening cycle.


However, futures on Fed funds indicate the possibility of a 25 basis points rate increase at the July FOMC meeting. This is driven by surprise rate hikes by other major central banks, such as the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) and the Bank of Canada (BoC), which suggest that the fight against inflation is not yet over. This limits the downside for the USD and provides support for the USD/CHF pair.


Traders are showing caution and refraining from making aggressive moves, choosing to wait for the release of the latest US consumer inflation figures, which are scheduled for later in the early North American session. The US CPI report will have an impact on the Fed's policy outlook and drive USD demand, potentially providing significant impetus to the USD/CHF pair ahead of the FOMC policy decision on Wednesday.


Meanwhile, the generally positive sentiment in equity markets may weaken the safe-haven Swiss Franc (CHF) and offer some support to the USD/CHF pair. However, a slight decrease in US Treasury bond yields could deter traders from positioning for a substantial USD recovery. As a result, the USD/CHF pair is more likely to continue exhibiting subdued or range-bound price action on Tuesday.

Buy Scenario: -


A recovery in the USD/CHF pair, it would need to trade successfully above the 200-HMA level, currently at 0.9065. Additionally, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the pair's downtrend from May 31 to June 09, near 0.9085, acts as a short-term upside hurdle.


Above all, the USD/CHF bulls would face crucial resistance around the double top formation near 0.9110 in their quest to regain control. Till we do not advise to buy USD/CHF.


Sell Scenario: - The bearish signals from the MACD and the reversal of the RSI (14) from the overbought territory contribute to the downside bias. However, the RSI line currently sits below the 50.0 level, suggesting limited room for further downside in the USD/CHF pair.


Attention is drawn to the convergence of the 50-HMA and an ascending trend line from last Friday, around 0.9045, which serves as key support.


If the bears manage to break this strong support, a quick decline towards the psychological level of 0.9000 cannot be ruled out. Subsequently, the pair's sellers may face resistance at the monthly low of 0.8985 and the previous monthly low of 0.8820. Till we do not advise to sell USD/CHF.


Support and Resistance Level: -

 Support              Resistance  

 S1 0.9034   -     R1 0.9128

 S2 0.8978  -      R2 0.9165

 S3 0.8941  -      R3 0.9221
