USDCHF Technical Analysis

First things first: USDCHF crossed above its 100 day moving average 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 3.2 pips away. Volatility for USDCHF has been contracting over the past two weeks relative to volatility over the past month. Whether volatility reverts will be something to watch. The clearest trend exists on the 30 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 90 day timeframe. For additional context, note that price has gone up 18 out of the past 30 days.
