CAD/CHF Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that the current price of CAD/CHF is sitting close to its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages; moving average crosses often indicate a change in momentum, so this may be worth keeping an eye on. As for the alignment of the moving averages, well, it’s a bit mixed up; the 20, 50, 100, and 200 do not progress from largest to smallest, or vice versa. The closest is the 50 day average, which is 0 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. For additional context, note that price has gone up 16 out of the past 30 days.
