The last week, we wrote, “. We have a support area 0.9080/70 and only the foolhardy will play back above 0.91. Now, many resistances are then back to 0.92 and it seems almost certain that these points as 0.9140/50 and 0.9180 will sellers come to reposition itself “and finally, parity has consolidated above 0.9080/70 and to return end the week on 0.9180.
The mixed U.S. data did not dampen the appetite for the dollar strengthened in this by the uncertainties before the French presidential election and especially the vagueness of what could be the composition of the new legislative majority in Greece. Indeed, the risk is ending up on the evening of May 6 with a patchwork of smaller parties making anti-austerity fear the worst about the future of Greece in the euro area. Thus, the traders do not want to take risks and have turned to the dollar currency.
So how to stand on the USD-CHF this week? First the daily MACD is again bullish. Nevertheless, the question that will arise is whether we will continue to do so or if it is only a fit of temper.
Obviously, we’ll know very quickly because the Greeks are known results on Sunday evening and pushed up should be quick, if no majority is found.
So if 0.9180 and rose up, the next goals are to 0.9220/40 then 0.9280/9320. On these levels, sellers should still have their say and come to replace. Failing that, 0.9380 could be the next goal, again with more vendors. Buyers for their part, put their stoploss between 0.9145 and 40.
On the downside, the 0.9180/90 resistance zone precludes a return to 0.9120 and then 0.9080/70 is possible. The sellers put their stoploss above 0.9195 to 0.9205 and. But it will be necessary to remain light.
