By the time of writing this article, USD/CHF on Overbit is traded at $0.92800 and is testing the upper edge of a triangle pattern. The breakout from this triangle will trigger a jump towards $0.93760 and $0.94750 above the local high. The uptrend is supported by RSI and MACD indicators as well as the EMA50. The volatility during the FOMC meetings will create a bumpy road for the price’s ongoing trend-continuation, hence it is highly recommended to keep eye on key levels, supports and resistances, one important resistance lies at $0.93140.
