GBPCHF Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that 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 50 day average, which is 203.4 pips away. 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. Also of note is that on a 90 day basis price appears to be forming a base — which could the stage for it being a support/resistance level going forward. For additional context, note that price has gone down 7 out of the past 10 days.
