USD/CHF: USD resumed growth

August 12, 2015

Current trend

On Tuesday, the USD/CHF pair resumed its growth after some correction in the US against its major competitors. As a result, the pair reached its highs since the end of March.

One of the reasons of the growth, in addition to few positive publications from the US, was an unexpected decision by the Chinese Central Bank to devaluate national currency, which led to the Yuan falling to its 3-year lows.

MACD is turning down and forming a sell signal. Stochastic is leaving the overbought zone and is giving a sell signal as well.
