The OPEC meeting and the US Nonfarm Payrolls rocked the market last week. The market is torn between optimism about the global economic recovery and concerns about the new coronavirus strains.
The euro in a double-top pattern
The euro is showing an interesting movement today. On the H1 chart of EUR/CHF, we see that yesterday the price fell from the resistance of 1.0975 to the support of 1.0958 (17 pips down). Today, it rose back to 1.0975, forming the second peak at the same resistance level. This observation allows us to interpret this movement as a double-top pattern. Based on this, if the bears pull the price down enough to break through the support level of 1.0963 and the neckline of 1.0958, the price will be likely to drop down by another 17 pips. Otherwise, if the market makes a reversal to the upward direction, the resistance level of 1.0975 would be a mark to confirm its bullish mood.
