USD-CHF Declines on Correction

The following commentary comes from an independent investor or market observer as part of TheStreet's guest contributor program, which is separate from the company's news coverage.

NEW YORK ( -- The USD-CHF pair has given back its gains from last week and could be heading further lower toward the 0.8928 to 0.8918 zone. This area is a key support zone and its break could mean deeper corrective weakness possibly toward the 0.8810 level, its daily exponential moving average.

Further downside support comes in at its Sept. 15 low of 0.8647. A move below here would pave the way toward the 0.8574 level. Its daily RSI is bearish and pointing lower supporting its corrective weakness.

Alternatively, for USD-CHF to halt its present bear threats, it will have to break and close above the 1.9316 level, its October high. This would set the stage for a move toward the April 1 high of 0.9340 and possibly higher, toward the 0.9400 level.

All in all, the pair may be retaining its short-term uptrend but now faces corrective weakness.
