AUD/CHF ( Australian Dollar vs Swiss Franc) potential further weakness for the AUD/CHF, current price is below its 200 day moving average (bearish); multi-week lower tops and lower bottoms on price (bearish); downside below 0.6367 places 0.6161 as lower target, however the prospect for a test of the key 0.6367 resistance can not be ruled out in the very short term (5-13 days).
EUR / JPY the bullish medium term trend (25-50 days) seems to remain intact, higher tops and higher bottoms on price indicate a dow pattern uptrend is in place while current price is above its multi-week tentative uptrend line, the recent price pull back from the March 02 2023 high near the 145.8 resistance appears to be a “corrective” move from the February 10 2023 low - March 02 2023 highs, provided price can break above the 145.8 resistance the prospects for a further advance towards the 146.7s can not be ruled out, however a break below the 143 lower support may suggest the end of the prevailing multi week uptrend.
