EUR/USD, EUR/CHF and euro rally at a juncture


Recommended Posts

EUR/USD upswing is intact for now but there are challenges ahead; EUR/CHF has seen a pullback but remains on firm footing for the moment and short-term momentum favours the euro.

EUR/USD technical outlook

After making a 2-year low at 1.08062 two weeks ago, EUR/USD has managed to gain some short-term bullish momentum as it crossed above the 10-day simple moving average (SMA) and it’s gradient is positive.

Further bullish momentum may unfold if the price is to cross above the 21-day SMA, but it would take a sustained rally above it to turn the gradient to a positive slope.

Nearby resistance might be at the recent peaks of 1.11212 and 1.11375. Further up, resistance could be at the previous highs and pivot points of 1.12743, 1.12802, 1.13751, 1.13959, 1.14830 and 1.14949.

The slight weakness of the last few sessions has the price nearing an ascending trend line, currently intersecting at 1.0995, a level of potential support.

Below there, the previous lows of 1.0891 and 1.08062 are potential levels of support.

EUR/CHF technical outlook

Similar to EUR/USD, EUR/CHF made a 7-year low 2-weeks ago at 0.99728.

It has not traded at these levels since the Swiss National Bank (SNB) abandoned protecting the so-called “Swissy” from what it perceived to be overvaluation.

Yesterday’s price action saw EUR/CHF sneak below support at 1.02790 and touch the 10 and 21-day simple moving average (SMA) before bouncing back above 1.02790.

The next few sessions might be significant for the cross, as a continuation higher is a rejection of that attempt to go lower. While a decisive move below the 21-day SMA may signal short-term bullish momentum has evaporated.

To the downside, immediate support could be at yesterday’s low of 1.02646 which is also the current level of the 21-day SMA. Further down support may lie at the prior lows of 1.01550 and 0.99728.

On the upside, the 55 and 100-day SMAs are straddling the recent peak of 1.04024 and might provide a zone of resistance, as well as the prior high of 1.04480.

A pivot point at 1.05117 also has a descending trend line dissecting near it and could offer resistance. Above there the 200-day SMA is also near the February high of 1.06091, offering potential resistance.

    • Another reason I prefer DAX to other markets is that I am able to use my own profitable method on it, which I call "Reverse Trades." In it's simplest form it is a good Entry Point, which is used repeatedly for trades, for as many times as the market price returns to this Entry Point.  This is illustrated in the chart below for 22nd May. The best Reverse Trades occur when the market beats the Entry Price and then re-crosses the Entry Price. If this is not clear, feel free to write to me and I will explain in greater detail.
    • The gaming industry is one of the industries that has effectively leveraged the efficiency of blockchain technology to drive growth. A fiercely competitive sector, it takes unique innovative Ideas to stand out. When analysing the chances of infant GameFi projects to reach the heights, one project seems to have staked a claim to be soon held in the same breath as the leading projects– Param Labs. Param Labs, an AAA game and blockchain development studio is dedicated to creating top-tier blockchain-integrated games with player-owned digital assets, and is developing a modular gaming ecosystem, comprised of games and infrastructure.  Already a trending project thanks to the widespread participation of its airdrop, Param has gone on to strike partnership with Animoca Brands, a frontrunner for advancing digital property rights within gaming and the open metaverse; highlighting its wildfire-esque spread. While the buzzing community anticipate their airdrop reward, the news that it will launch on Bitget on 29th May amongst other exciting listings has spiked the anticipation. If you can relate, how excited are you with the imminent launch and what Param Labs brings to the gaming industry generally?
    • Hey all, as some of you know, I've been reviewing quite a few new crypto projects lately and breaking down what they're about and the problems they aim to solve. Today, I'll be doing the same for a platform called HiveSwap. HiveSwap is a decentralized exchange operating specifically within the Bitcoin ecosystem. It utilizes the MAP Protocol to enable interoperability and facilitate seamless token swaps across Bitcoin's various layers - the base layer, layer 2 networks, and the MAP interoperability layer itself. A major selling point is HiveSwap's ability to bridge the gap and allow swaps between Bitcoin ecosystem assets and those from major EVM chains like Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, and more. This cross-chain functionality is huge. The platform is also tackling liquidity issues for emerging asset classes like inscriptions and BTC-related tokens. HiveSwap provides a decentralized avenue for swapping these types of assets and creating liquidity pools, rather than being confined to centralized venues. With its robust underlying swap technology framework, HiveSwap ensures reliability and security for users contributing liquidity. It also incentivizes liquidity provision through liquidity mining rewards paid out in tokens. Overall, HiveSwap is positioning itself as the leading decentralized exchange within the Bitcoin realm. It's solving key interoperability challenges, bringing much-needed liquidity to newer assets, and leveraging proven tech for secure, trustless cross-chain/cross-layer swaps. HiveSwap is bridging multiple gaps in Bitcoin DeFi.
