Looking at daily chart, we notice on Friday USD/CHF moved to a higher trading zone 0.9860 – 0.9930. This week buyer attempted to rally the price to a higher zone although failed so far.
Thus, any successful close above the high end of the zone could push USD/CHF towards 1.0008. That said, buyers would need to keep an eye on the Aug 1 high with the weekly resistance level marked on the chart (zoomed in). Further close above 1.0008 could see the price trading even higher towards 1.0128. However, the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart should be kept in focus.
On the flip side, another failure to close above the high end of the zone could change the pair’s direction and send it towards the low end. Further close below the low end might press USD/CHF towards 0.9758. Nonetheless, the weekly support levels underscored on the chart should be considered.

Looking at the daily chart, we notice at the start of the week EUR/CHF moved to a higher trading zone 1.0950 – 1.1001 however, slipped back after. Today, the price tries hardly to resume bullish price action.
Hence, any close below the low end could reverse the pair’s course sending it towards 1.0810. Further close below this level may continue bearish price action towards 1.0623. In that scenario, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) need to be watched closely.
On the other hand, if EUR/CHF closes today above 1.0960 this could see the price pushing towards the high end of the zone. Although, the weekly resistance levels marked on the chart would be worth monitoring.
