Chart of the day: Down dynamic by US$ v Swissie


Following the mid-January dive to oversold levels against the Swiss Franc, many currencies have been clawing their way back upwards.  Here we show the US Dollar v Swissie, and this is one of the rates to have plotted a 'Peak' Key Day Reversal on Friday.  That feature, from SF0.9536 in this case, may well have capped the counter rally, though one observes that the Swiss unit is slipping in this morning's session, with the US$ currently changing hands at SF0.9455.  Still, a new recovery high is required to remove the danger of a further pullback.


Daily Comment:


After two sessions in the 'Losers' table versus the Japanese Yen, the Swiss Franc has made an appearance in the 'Gainers' list, with +1.2%.  Also, a 'Trough' Key Day Reversal is plotted from Y124.391.  A drop under that level would be needed to offset potential for a further recovery towards initial resistance near Y130.

The Australian Dollar has recorded a 0.7% gain versus Japan's currency.  The chart displays the Aussie reasserting the recovery from this year's earlier low towards late-January resistance at Y94.627, which is close to the 50-day moving average.  Note that line has recently acted as a barrier.

The Aussie has steadied against the New Zealand Dollar.  Finding support at NZ$1.0301 on 19 February means that the last remaining historic chart support at NZ$1.0285, plotted in mid-1997, has survived.  Also, following Friday's action, there are also hopes for an additional 'bear trap' recovery over the short term.

We continue to monitor the charts for the Kiwi against its US counterpart, with a view to selling should downtrend resistance be encountered hereabouts (see hotline for 17 February).  The rate was priced at US$0.7492 a short time ago.
