USD/CHF 4H Chart: Breakout Could Occur

Technical analysis of Forex market

The US Dollar has surged by 95 pips or 0.99% in value against the Swiss Franc since January 15. The currency pair tested the upper boundary of a descending channel pattern at 0.9712 on January 27.

Given that the USD/CHF exchange rate is trading near the upper boundary of the descending channel pattern, a breakout might occur within this week’s sessions.

If this breakout occurs, a surge towards a resistance cluster formed by the weekly R2 and the monthly PP at 0.9774 could be expected.

However, if the descending channel holds, the currency exchange rate will most likely continue its downward movement in the shorter term.
