FXStreet (Córdoba) - The USD/CHF rose back to retest 6-month highs Wednesday as rising geopolitical tensions and upbeat confidence data have kept the USD in demand.



Following a consolidation phase, the USD/CHF climbed back to a high of 0.9073 at the beginning of the European session, matching yesterday’s peak. However, the dollar has lacked momentum to break above that level. At time of writing, the USD/CHF is trading at 0.9070, virtually unchanged on the day.



Up ahead, US ADP, 2Q GDP flash and the FOMC decision could offer some direction to financial markets.
