Monday saw strong upside in USDCHF. Friday’s minor upside was not only continued, but accelerated with gains of more than a big figure.
This fresh demand took the currency pair aggressively through the 13 day and 200 day moving average area, and to the most positive levels traded for three weeks. The speed and scope of gains means immediate signals for sentiment are overbought but we currently look for intraday setbacks to remain modest and temporary.
