GBPCHF Technical Analysis

Coming into today the current price of GBPCHF 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 20 day average, which is 25.1 pips away. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 30 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 10 days GBPCHF’s price has gone down 7 them.
