USD/CHF consolidates near 14-month highs above 0.9500

FXStreet (Córdoba) - USD/CHF entered a consolidation phase after hitting fresh 14-month high as the dollar continues to build gains across the board.

USD/CHF opened the week little changed but then advanced to its highest level since July 2013 at 0.9531 following comments from SNB Jordan saying that negative interest rates remain a possibility if deflation risks increase. However, the pair failed to break decisively above that level and pulled back. At time of writing, USD/CHF is trading at 0.9510, little changed on the day.
