FXStreet (Mumbai) – The USD/CHF pair finally broke through the Asian consolidative mode and spiked higher stepping into the early European trades.
USD/CHF eyes NY highs
Currently, the USD/CHF pair trades 0.13% higher at fresh session highs of 0.9903, having found renewed bids once again at 1.0960 levels. The major was caught by a fresh bid wave last minutes and jumped above 0.99 handle, posing a solid recovery from near 100-DMA located at 0.9868.
Calm seems to have spread across the markets as traders remain wary over global economic prospects heading into 2016, triggering a renewed bout of risk-aversion and boosting the demand for safety assets such as the CHF. Amid a lack of fresh fundamental triggers in Europe, attention now shifts towards the US weekly jobless claims and Chicago PMI data due out in the NY session.
