  • Swiss Franc depreciates across the board, EUR/CHF at 2-month highs.
  • USD/CHF heads for the highest close since January 2017.  

The USD/CHF pair continued  to rise at a modest pace during the US session and peaked at 1.0159. Near the end of the American session, it is up for the day, about to post the eight daily gain out of the last ten days.  

A weaker Swiss franc boosted the pair to the upside. EUR/CHF broke above 1.1425 and trades at 1.1435 about to post the highest early November. The weakness that followed Thursday’s EZ data was short-lived.  

Volatility continued at low levels on Monday. Data released today showed lower-than-expected housing numbers for the US, but it was ignored. Activity will return to normal tomorrow with European markets fully operating after holidays. The key data to be released over the week in the US will be on Friday with the first estimate of Q1 GDP.
