GBP/CHF Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that the current price of GBP/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 20 day average, which is 150.9 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time.
