USD/CHF Halts a 4-day Rally, Attacks 0.9700

The USD bulls finally faced exhaustion and turned in the negative territory for the first time in five days, mainly driven by persisting risk-off environment.

USD/CHF fails near 0.9740

Currently, the USD/CHF pair trades -0.19% lower at 0.9708, languishing near session lows reached at 0.9707 last minutes. The major edged lower this session largely on the back of profit-taking after the prices failed to surpass Friday’s tops. Moreover, the USD bulls took a breather in their upsurge as markets now await the European open for fresh take on the USD/CHF pair. Further, Swiss CPI report due out shortly will be closely eyed on further momentum on the major.
