EUR/USD Technical Analysis
The Euro formed a decent support near the 1.1170 and 1.1175 levels against the US Dollar. The EUR/USD pair traded higher above the 1.1240 level, but it struggled to hold gains above the 1.1260 level.
A swing high was formed at 1.1263 on FXOpen and the pair recently started a downside correction. It broke the 1.1240 and 1.1220 levels to enter a bearish zone.
There was also a break below a connecting bullish trend line with support at 1.1228 on the hourly chart. Besides, the pair settled below the 1.1220 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. It cleared the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 1.1174 low to 1.1263 high.
The pair is currently under pressure and it seems like it could continue to move down in the near term. An immediate support is near the 1.1195 level, plus the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 1.1174 low to 1.1263 high.
If there is a break below the 1.1195 support, the pair is likely to test the main 1.1175 support area. On the upside, there is a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at 1.1225.
To start a fresh increase, EUR/USD must break the 1.1225 resistance level and settle above the 50 hourly simple moving average. If it fails to recover above 1.1225, there is a risk of an extended decline below 1.1175.
USD/CHF Technical Analysis
The US Dollar started a significant downward move from well above the 1.0200 level against the Swiss franc. The USD/CHF pair broke the main 1.0150 support level to enter a bearish zone.
During the recent decline, the pair even broke the 1.0100 support and the 50 hourly simple moving average. It traded close to the 1.0050 level and recently started an upside correction.

On the upside, there are many resistances near the 1.0100 and 1.0110 levels. The 50% Fib retracement level of the latest drop from the 1.0158 high to 1.0050 low is also near the 1.0104 level to act as a strong resistance.
Above 1.0110, the pair could test the 1.0120 level. However, a strong upward move above 1.0100 won’t be easy. If USD/CHF fails to climb above the 1.0100 level, there is a risk of another push below the 1.0070 level.
The next key support for USD/CHF is near the 1.0050 level, below which the pair could test 1.0020 in the near term.
