USD/CNH daily chart
On the daily chart, the pair has broken the long term consolidation of $6.4525 on September 10 and touched the levels seen in June around $6.4270. USD/CNH recovered swiftly in the previous session’s upside momentum and pushed above $6.4600 weekly highs.
Furthermore, the descending trendline from the high of $6.5277 acts as a defence for the bulls. Now, if price is sustained above the intraday high, it could test back the high made on September 7 at $6.4648.
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator trades in the oversold zone. Any uptick in the MACD would amplify the buying pressure to the $6.4775 horizontal support level.
USD/CNH bulls would take the dare to test the $6.4990 horizontal resistance level if succeeded in a daily close above the bearish slop line.
Alternatively, a reversal in price movement would try to test the $6.4400 horizontal support level followed by the previous day’s low of $6.4264.
Next, the market participants keep their eye on the $6.4200 horizontal support level.
