USDCHF prints a five-day uptrend to refresh the yearly high at around 0.9460. The pair’s latest upswing took place from the 21-DMA and monthly support line. However, the overbought RSI and April 2021 peak near 0.9475 challenge the pair buyers ahead of a speech from the Swiss National Bank (SNB) Chairman Thomas Jordan. Even if the quote rises past 0.9475, an upward sloping trend line from late September, around 0.9485, will act like a tough nut to crack for the bulls. Also acting as an upward barrier is the 0.9500 psychological magnet.
Alternatively, pullback moves may initially aim for the 0.9400 threshold before testing the short-term support line surrounding 0.9350. Even if the USDCHF bears manage to conquer the nearby trend line support, the 21-DMA level of 0.9326 and the 0.9300 round figure could entertain them. It’s worth noting, however, that the latest swing low, marked on March 31 around 0.9195, becomes important support to watch during the pair’s declines past-0.9300.
Overall, the USDCHF upside is likely to fade soon and hence today’s speech from SNB Chief Jordan will be important to watch.
