USD/CHF sentiment

"Traders aren't looking past what happens in the next five minutes but there’s some good news is the pipeline," comments Adam Button from ForexLive. "The Beige Book later will be upbeat about the economy and remind everyone that the Fed hasn't committed to anything. But for the dollar, that could be more bad news."

If the pair consolidates losses below 0.9450, it will face next supports at 0.9430 and 0.9400. On the upside, resistances are at 0.9470, 0.9550 and 0.9590.
