Later, buyers took a stand near the 1.1440 and 1.1430 support levels. As a result, the pair started a decent recovery and moved above the 1.1480 resistance. There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 1.1549 high to 1.1432 low.
The pair succeeded in settling above the 1.1500 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. More importantly, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance at 1.1500 on the hourly chart.
It has opened the doors for more gains above the 1.1520 level in the near term. An immediate resistance for buyers is near the 1.1520 and the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 1.1549 high to 1.1432 low.
Above 1.1520, the pair is likely to visit the 1.1550 and 1.1580 levels in the near term. On the other hand, if there is a downside correction, the broken resistance at 1.1480 and the 50 hourly SMA are likely to act as key supports for buyers.

USD/CHF Technical Analysis
The US Dollar remained in a bullish zone above the 0.9900 level this past week against the Swiss franc. However, the USD/CHF pair struggled to move above the 0.9950 and 0.9960 resistance levels.
It seems like there were two rejections noted around the 0.9955 level. It means the pair likely formed a double top pattern and declined below the 0.9920 support. During the decline, the pair broke the 0.9915 support and settled below the 50 hourly simple moving average.
Moreover, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support at 0.9925 on the hourly chart. The pair even traded below the 1.236 Fib extension level of the last wave from the 0.9920 low to 0.9955 high.
It means there are high chances of more losses below the 0.9900 level in the near term. The next support awaits near 0.9890 and the 1.618 Fib extension level of the last wave from the 0.9920 low to 0.9955 high.
If the pair continues to move down, it could test the next major support at 0.9860 where buyers are likely to emerge. On the upside, an initial resistance is around 0.9930 and the 50 hourly SMA.
Above 0.9930, USD/CHF could revisit the 0.9950 and 0.9960 resistance levels. Overall, the pair remains at a risk of more losses below 0.9900 in the near term.
