Technical Analysis


The US dollar has been rather firm against most of its peers lately. That’s especially visible on the chart of USD/CHF with a month-long uptrend from above 0.90 to 0.93.

Currently, USD/CHF slid but it appears to be a temporary downswing inside the larger context of its upward movement towards 0.93.


USD/JPY is hovering above the support level of $109. It seems likely to move up to $110 in the near future.

JPMorgan Chase

This stock has descended below $160. Its latest bearish move suggests it may slide all the way to the support level of $150.
