  • USD/CHF falls toward the parity level, retreating from 2-day highs. 
  • US Dollar Index resumes decline and hits fresh weekly lows. 

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.

Previously it was reported that industrial production rose 0.1% in February, below the 0.4% expected. 

On a weekly basis, USD/CHF is consolidating weekly losses, retreating from multi-month highs. Again, the greenback was rejected from above 1.0100. Below parity, a strong support is seen around 0.9960/70 (20-week moving average).
