USDCHF – bears pressure key support at 0.9699
The pair remains under strong pressure and holding firmly in red for the third straight day, following repeated upside rejection at daily cloud base earlier this week.
Today’s fresh bearish extension pressures key support at 0.9699 (02 Jan low) and threatening for break lower which would trigger extension of broader downtrend from 1.0038 (27 Oct high) towards next strong supports at 0.9656 (Fibo 61.8% of 0.9420/1.0038) and 0.9652 (weekly 200SMA).
Firm bearish setup of daily techs is supportive for further weakness, however, bears may show hesitation at 0.9699 support and enter consolidative phase before resuming.
Falling 10SMA (0.9757) is expected to ideally cap and keep intact next strong barrier at 0.9772, provided by 200SMA.
