What can we expect from USDCHF for the new week and what happened on Friday?
USDCHF on Friday rose 0.32% to 0.91930. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is rising. For the week ending 2023-03-24, the pair dropped -0.69% or -64 pips lower.
Looking ahead on Monday, USDCHF looks bullish as the pair ended higher after Friday trading session.
For the new week, our technical outlook is mixed. To see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of week high of 0.93171 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 0.92090. On the downside, we are looking at week low 0.91170 or 0.91010 (WS1) as immediate support level. USDCHF need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below week low of 0.91170 would indicate selling pressure.
For the month of March, USDCHF is down by -2.42% or -228 pips lower.
