GBPCHF Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that GBPCHF is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. 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 34 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 and 100 day simple moving averages turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. 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 30 days GBPCHF’s price has gone up 15 them.
