AUD/CHF: Upside Potential After Support Zone Holds

After the RBA cut interest rates to 0.75% as was widely expected, the AUD/CHF dropped from its 61.8 Fibonacci Retracement Fan Resistance Level into its short-term support zone from where bearish momentum eroded quickly. This process was assisted by a string of economic disappointments out of Switzerland while Chinese data surprised to the upside. As price action is gearing up for a breakout, this currency pair should retrace its correction back into it 61.8 Fibonacci Retracement Fan Resistance Level from where an extension into its resistance zone is likely to follow.

The Force Index, a next generation technical indicator, is pointing towards a gradual increase in bullish pressures. A positive divergence formed, within the ascending support level, which indicates that a price action reversal may be imminent. A positive divergence forms when an asset contracts while the technical indicators advances which is marked by the green rectangle. The Force Index remains in negative territory above its ascending support level and is now closing in on its descending resistance level. A successful move above above it will take this technical indicator into positive territory and above its horizontal resistance level, turning it into support.
