CHF/JPY Sell Trade Idea – July 27th 2020

The overall trend of the CHF/JPY remains extremely bullish, thus making any selling opportunity riskier in relation to a trend following opportunity. However, a clean bounce off the 127.2% Fibs could show a potential price weakness, and considering that most types of corrections are faster than the trend itself, CHF/JPY might move down either sharply or very steadily throughout this week.

Price Action:

On the weekly chart, we have applied the Fibonacci retracement indicator to the last wave up occurred between March 08 – July 23. The purpose was to find levels of support if the price will start to correct down. The most interesting level is 61.8% Fibs at 111.90 because it corresponds to the Simple and Exponential Moving Averages on the Weekly and Daily charts.

Moving on to the 4-hour timeframe, we can see that Fibs applied to the last downside correction shows a clear rejection of the 127.2% Fibonacci retracement level at 115.27. After the bounce, the price went down and produced a new lower low. It seems like the beginning of a stronger move to the downside, which at the end might result in a 260 pips decline.

The previous area of resistance is seen at 114.60, which was acting as the support for a very short time. There is a narrow price area between 114.48 – 114.60, which could be a strong supply zone for the CHF/JPY, making it an ideal selling point for bears. As long as price stays below 115.27 resistance, a further pullback should be expected. Price is likely to test one of the Fibonacci support levels, with the final target at 111.90.
