USD/CHF: 1-hour

Here’s an update on that USD/CHF forex chart I showed y’all yesterday. The pair just made a strong upside break from the trend line, indicating that the downtrend is already over. Price is in tight consolidation at the moment, forming a bullish pennant pattern and suggesting that the rally could resume as soon as more bulls catch on. Stochastic is heading down for now, but USD/CHF could start climbing again once the oscillator reaches the oversold zone and moves back up.

AUD/USD: 1-hour

Aaah… breakout! AUD/USD breached the rising trend line on its 1-hour forex chart, hinting that bulls are tired of pushing the pair higher. Further losses might be in the cards, but price looks ready to make a quick retracement before resuming its drop. The Fibonacci levels on the latest swing high and low line up with the broken trend line, which could act as a potential resistance area. Make sure you set your stop above the highest Fib if you’re thinking of shorting!

EUR/CHF: 4-hour

Careful, euro bulls! EUR/CHF already broke below the rising trend channel on its 4-hour forex chart, which means that the pair might be headed south. Before that happens though, a pullback to the broken channel support could be in the cards, as price bounced off the 1.2130 lows and retreated to the 38.2% Fib level. Stochastic is almost in the overbought level, indicating that bulls are exhausted and bears are just waiting to take over. A higher pullback could last until the 50% Fib, which is closer to the channel bottom.
