USD/CHF weaker, breaks below 0.9600

FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The weakness around the greenback is now picking up pace, dragging USD/CHF to sub-0.9600 levels.

USD/CHF lower on USD-selling

Spot is retreating for the third consecutive week so far and challenging 4-week lows in the 0.9590 area in response to the generalized offered tone around the US dollar.

News from Switzerland states that the country will impose 5% leverage ratio on its biggest banks, while on the data space Producer and Import Prices have contracted 0.1% MoM during September and dropped at an annual rate of 6.8%.

USD/CHF levels to consider

At the moment the pair is losing 0.39% at 0.9589 facing the immediate support at 0.9574 (200-day sma) ahead of 0.9527 (low Sep.18) and then 0.9500 (psychological level). On the upside, a break above 0.9683 (55-day sma) would open the door to 0.9843 (monthly high Sep.23) and finally 0.9903 (high Aug.11).
