GBPCHF Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that GBPCHF is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day averages, located at 1.1983, 1.1988, 1.1924 and 1.1925 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. 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 105.4 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days GBPCHF’s price has gone up 9 them. Oh, and one last thing: if you trade off of candlesticks, note that we’re seeing pin bar pattern appearing here.
