GBPCHF Technical Analysis

First things first: GBPCHF crossed above its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages yesterday. 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 100 day average, which is 4.8 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 100 day simple moving average turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 30 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 14 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 up 5 them. Also, candlestick traders! Note we see morning star pattern appearing here as well.
