Commerzbank: comments on USD/CHF and EUR/CHF

The greenback rebounded from the record minimum versus Swiss franc in the 0.7600 area and is on its way up to 0.7800.

Technical analysts at Commerzbank note that there are signs of reversal after the Swiss National Bank eased yesterday its monetary policy. The RSI on dollar shows that it’s oversold.

The specialists expect the pair USD/CHF to stabilize above the 25-year support line at 0.7554/50 that connects the minimums from 1987.
