USD/CHF Short-term bullish.

USD/CHF is trading higher within a slight short-term bullish trend. Hourly resistance can be found at 0.9696 (09/06/2017 high). Strong resistance is given at 1.0107 (10/04/2017 high). Hourly support is given at 0.9553 (30/06/2017 low). Expected to inch higher.

In the long-term, the pair is still trading in range since 2011 despite some turmoil when the SNB unpegged the CHF. Key support can be found 0.8986 (30/01/2015 low). The technical structure favours nonetheless a long term bullish bias since the unpeg in January 2015.

USD/CAD Important selling pressures.

USD/CAD is going lower but the pair remains in a strong bearish momentum. Hourly support is given at 1.2681 (12/07/2017 low). Resistance is located at 1.3014 (02/15/2017). Expected to show continued bearish pressures.

AUD/USD Buying pressures increase again.

AUD/USD's technical structure is bullish since early May despite some consolidation move. An unlikely break of support at 0.7520 (09/06/2017 low) would nonetheless indicate a renewed bearish trend.

In the long-term, we are waiting for further signs that the current downtrend is ending. Key supports stand at 0.6009 (31/10/2008 low) . A break of the key resistance at 0.8295 (15/01/2015 high) is needed to invalidate our long-term bearish view.
