Currently, the USD/CHF pair rises 0.21% to 1.0151, retreating from fresh session highs of 1.0168 levels. The USD bulls jumped back into the bids and drove the pair sharply higher beyond hourly 50-SMA at 1.0161, after Draghi’s dovish remarks smashed the EUR/USD pair and triggered a sharp USD rally across the board. The US dollar index jumps 0.34% to 99.42, retreating from 99.07 daily lows.
