Powell wants a soft landing for inflation, as Greenspan did in 1994. But it looks like he will get a hard landing.
USD/CHF: approaching the bottom?
2021-05-27 • Updated
As you can see on the H4 chart of USD/CHF, the price has been consistently going down since at least the beginning of April. Currently, it trades above 0.8950 having bounced off this support. What's the likely next move? That's the case when we have to look for the answer in a larger timeframe.
The strategic view shows that the currency pair is at seven-year lows now. 0.8950 is only slightly higher than the range 0.87-0.88 - the true bottom the pair may be dropping to. Therefore, expect the possibility of further downswing until it enters this support range. However, once it goes below 0.88, watch for the upside reversal chart patterns as it is likely to rise and float towards 1.00 again - as it's been doing during the last seven years.

However, during the past few days, investors and traders returned to risk assets as they expect inflation growth to slow. Moreover, Jerome Powell, the head of the Federal Reserve, announced the Fed might start cutting the key rate by 2024, which is the most evident hint of an upcoming market reversal.
