Our first upside target which we predicted in yesterday’s analysis has been hit. USD/CHF is expected to continue its upside movement. The pair remains within a bullish trend line, and should continue to post a new bounce to challenge 1.0000 (a key psychological level). The relative strength index is bullish and calls for a further advance. In addition, a strong support base at 0.9910 has been formed and should limit any downward attempts.
The U.S. dollar kept receiving bids as more investors are focusing on the potential economic benefits brought by the tax-cut bill. The currency’s strength also came ahead of Friday’s jobs report and next week’s meeting of the Federal Reserve, where officials are expected to raise interest rates.
To conclude, as long as 0.9910 is not broken, the pair is likely to advance to 1.0000 and 1.0050 in extension.
