FXStreet (Mumbai) - A sudden rally in USD/CHF fizzled near hourly 200-SMA and the prices drifted lower, now hovering around Oct high at 0.9961 levels.

USD/CHF rejected at hourly 200-SMA

Currently, the USD/CHF pair gains 0.28% to trade at 0.9960, easing-off fresh seven-month highs recorded at 0.9979 in last hours. The major trimmed gains as the US dollar gave away gains and now trades muted against its major competitors. The greenback, although remains underpinned by increased Dec Fed rate hike bets after Wednesday’s Yellen’s hawkish comments.

However, USD/CHF remains supported on the back of poor Swiss CPI data, which keeps the Swiss franc undermined. Switzerland’s CPI posted a 0.1% reading in Oct, unchanged from the previous month. Meanwhile, markets now await US jobs data for further momentum on the pair.
