AUD/CHF: levels to trade
2020-02-10 • Updated
AUD/CHF formed a higher low on the H1. The pair may be forming something like a “Crab” harmonic pattern. It has support around 0.6543 and may rise to the area between 0.6572 and 0.6582, where it will meet resistance (100-period MA on the H4, the line connecting January 29 and February highs). From that point, the possibility of a correction to the downside will be high.
At the same time, if the market sentiment improves and AUD/CHF breaks above 0.6592, an inverted “Head and Shoulders” pattern will form and the price will head towards 0.6678 (50% retracement of the December-February decline) and 0.6655 (200-period MA).
Trade idea for AUD/CHF
BUY 0.6545; TP 0.6575; SL 0.6535
BUY 0.6595; TP 0.6628; SL 0.6585

The first FOMC meeting comes after a buildup of anticipation from traders and investors alike, as the markets await what posture the Fed will take regarding the interest rates; would there be a hike or a cut in interest rates?
Western countries are trying to find other options for oil and gas supplies after a 10th package of sanctions, which will put more pressure on Russian oil and decrease global oil supply. Italy, for example, is in talks with Libya.
