EUR/CHF’s rebound from 1.1366 low resumed last week by breaking 1.1656 resistance and reached as high as 1.1707. Initial bias remains on the upside this week for 61.8% retracement of 1.2004 to 1.1366 at 1.1760. As such rebound is seen as the second leg of the corrective pattern from 1.2004, we’d expect strong resistance from 1.1760 to limit upside. On the downside, below 1.1618 will turn bias back to the downside for 1.1478 support and below. However, sustained trading above 1.1760 will pave the way to retest 1.2004 high next.
In the bigger picture, 1.2004 is seen as a medium term top with bearish divergence condition in daily and weekly MACD. 1.2000 is also an important resistance level. Hence, the corrective pattern from 1.2004 is expected to extend for a while before completion. Hence, we’re not anticipating a break of 1.2004 in near term. Another decline cannot be ruled out yet. But in that case, strong support should be seen at 1.1198 (2016 high), 61.8% retracement of 1.0629 to 1.2004 at 1.1154 to contain downside.
