USD/CHF paused to think of further direction

By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/CHF opened the day at 0.8934, reached session high at 0.8945, paused to think of further direction, and slid to 0.8930 area again.



Weak Swiss Numbers



The pair is on the move higher partly supported by the recent data from Switzerland. Weaker than expected CPI numbers only confirmed the view that the Swiss National Bank will be in no rush to tighten policy. The monthly index was -0.1% vs +0.1% expected, and the yearly stayed unchanged vs the forecast of 0.2% rise. Retail Sales were also much lower than the market anticipated: -0.6% vs. +1.8%. Thus, the move higher is not ruled out with initial target at 0.8957 resistance.
