GBPCHF Technical Analysis

First things first: GBPCHF crossed below its 20 and 50 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 20 day average, which is 17.7 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. Also of note is that on a 14 day basis price appears to be forming a base — which could the stage for it being a support/resistance level going forward. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 10 days GBPCHF’s price has gone up 5 them. Moreover, we’re also seeing a bearish engulfing pattern; in light of the uptrend on the 90 day charts this may be particularly noteworthy, as it may signal the uptrend is cooling and ready to reverse.
