AUD/CHF: Breakout Expected To Lead To More Upside

As equity markets extended their Santa Clause rally, the risk-on mood led to capital outflows from the safe-haven Swiss Franc. This allowed the AUD/CHF to accelerate to the upside after briefly venturing into its long-term support zone. Bullish momentum carried price action through its short-term resistance zone, converting it into support. The Fibonacci Retracement Fan sequence was redrawn to reflect the momentum change, but the advance temporarily paused following the breakout.

The Force Index, a next-generation technical indicator, recovered from a lower low together with this currency pair. After eclipsing its horizontal resistance level, bullish momentum stagnated and the Force Index retreated. A descending resistance level emerged and pressured this technical indicator back below its horizontal resistance level, as marked by the green rectangle. It additionally pushed the Force Index below its ascending support level, but it remains in positive territory with bulls in control of the AUD/CHF. A new advance is favored to follow.

Following the conversion of the short-term resistance zone into support, more upside is anticipated. This zone is located between 0.67551 and 0.67735, as marked by the grey rectangle. The preceding corrective phase resulted in a higher low, adding to bullish developments in the AUD/CHF. The Australian Dollar is the top Chinese Yuan proxy currency, and as the Chinese economy shows signs of stabilization, the long-term outlook for this currency pair suggests a continuation of the breakout sequence. You can learn more about a breakout here.

Given the higher low, a breakout above this zone is favored to result in a higher high for the AUD/CHF. The next resistance zone is located between 0.68881 and 0.69175.
