Sentiment looks negative for USDCHF after fall through key average


Friday’s sharp fall through the 100 day moving average deepened on Monday. This latest decline — the third in a row — took USDCHF to test the 13 and 200 day moving average area.

The scope of the three day move also took signals for sentiment to oversold extremes. That element coupled with positive divergence in some technical signals introduces a strong note of caution to today’s analysis, but Asian losses have emphasised an underlying negative tone.
