The USD/CHF pair peaked at the beginning of the US session at 1.0051, reaching the highest level in two day but then turned again to the downside, falling to 1.0008, a fresh 10-day low. 

The pair remains with a negative tone and close to the 1.0000 area. The move to the downside took place a mid a decline of the US dollar across the board on the back of lower US yields and an improvement in risk sentiment

Some better-than-expected data from the US did not help the dollar.
