DXY edges lower on Monday
In the absence of significant fundamental drivers, the USD's market valuation continues to impact USD/CHF's movements. After Wall Street's main indexes opened decisively higher on Monday, risk flows continue to dominate the markets and force the USD to stay on the back foot.
At the moment, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite indexes are up 1% and 1.65%, respectively. Meanwhile, the US Dollar Index (DXY) is losing 0.25% on the day at 89.79.
The only data from the US revealed on Monday that the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago's National Activity Index fell to 0.24 in April from 1.71 in May.
There won't be any other data releases from the US in the remainder of the day and investors are likely to remain focused on risk perception. Cleveland Federal Reserve President Loretta Mester and Atlanta Federal Reserve President Raphael Bostic are scheduled to deliver speeches later in the session.
