The Swiss franc is the best performer among the main European currencies over the last seven trading days. Despite the improvement in market sentiment, it kept rising. Today, CHF versus EUR hit the highest level in more than two years. 

The EUR/CHF pair dropped to 1.0759, after breaking a consolidation range. As of writing it trades at 1.0770/75, down almost 40 pips for the day, about to post the lowest close since April 2017.
