0
  • USD/CHF falls toward the parity level, retreating from 2-day highs. 
  • US Dollar Index resumes decline and hits fresh weekly lows. 

The USD/CHF pair peaked at the beginning of the US session at 1.0051, reaching the highest level in two day but then turned again to the downside, falling to 1.0008, a fresh 10-day low. 

The pair remains with a negative tone and close to the 1.0000 area. The move to the downside took place a mid a decline of the US dollar across the board on the back of lower US yields and an improvement in risk sentiment. 

Some better-than-expected data from the US did not help the dollar. The Consumer Sentiment survey from the University of Michigan reported an improvement to 97.8 in March from 93.8, significantly above expectations. Previously it was reported that industrial production rose 0.1% in February, below the 0.4% expected. 

On a weekly basis, USD/CHF is consolidating weekly losses, retreating from multi-month highs. Again, the greenback was rejected from above 1.0100. Below parity, a strong support is seen around 0.9960/70 (20-week moving average).
