Chart of the day: 'Peak' KDR by US$ v Swissie, but...


The US Dollar has plotted a 'Peak' Key Day Reversal against the Swiss Franc.  Finding intraday resistance at SF0.9796, the Greenback has paused its uptrend just beneath next chart resistance at the May 2013 high at SF0.9839.

That said, however, the US unit remains above rising support from the 50-day moving average, which is currently located near the mid-November low, at SF0.9531.  A breach would be required to cause more serious pattern damage.


Daily Comment:


The Brazilian Real has weakened again.  The US Dollar, for instance, has recorded a 1.5% gain for yesterday's session, as it extends the rally from uptrend support at the 50-day moving average.  That support is currently situated at the short-term sideways area near BR2.50.

We continue to hold a short position in the Real versus British Pound.  Shedding 1.3%, the Brazilian currency maintains the downtrend towards the 2008 floor at Ł0.2727.

Even the Australian Dollar has bounced v Real, with support at the 200-day MA and late-November low at BR2.1290 holding (see 'Gainers' for the chart).

The Aussie has extended its decline against the Canadian Dollar.  However, the 'thin lower tail' on the last candle shows that intraday support was available at Thursday's low, at C$0.9497.  With the RSI near oversold levels, we tighten the stop on the short held in the rate to C$0.9600 to lock in a profit.

The stop on the long trade in the Euro versus the Australian unit is also tightened.  Placed at A$1.47, a profit is guaranteed.

The single European currency's small recovery from oversold against the Swiss Franc is struggling.  The rate is finding resistance near supply starting at the lateral region along SF1.2050; near the 50-day MA.  A push past that barrier is needed to remove the risk of further slippage towards the 2012 floor at SF1.2000.
