- 10-year US Treasury bond yield erased early losses.
- Wall Street's main indexes look to open decisively higher.
- US Dollar Index climbs to fresh multi-week highs above 98.
The USD/CHF dropped to 0.9680 area during the European trading hours but staged a rebound ahead of the American session and was last seen trading at 0.9720, adding 0.26% on a daily basis. Recovering market sentiment and the broad-based USD strength seems to be helping the pair gain traction.
Reports suggesting that the coronavirus outbreak could reach its peak in the next seven to ten days seem to be helping the market mood to turn positive with the 10-year US Treasury bond yield erasing its losses and rising nearly 1% at the time of writing. Furthermore, the S&P 500 futures are up nearly 0.6% to suggest that Wall Street's main indexes are likely to start the day sharply higher.
US Dollar Index rises above 98
Meanwhile, the US Dollar Index is posting gains for the fourth straight day on Tuesday and is above the 98 mark for the first time since early December to help the pair preserve its bullish momentum.
The Durable Goods Orders data, which is expected to show an increase of 0.5% in December following November's 2.1% drop, and the Conference Board's Consumer Confidence Index will be looked upon for fresh catalysts. Participants will be paying close attention to Wall Street's performance as well.
