Forex Flash: USD/CHF potential decline ahead – Societe Generale

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The cross is now trading in a very narrow range between 0.9490 and 0.9500 on Friday, stabilizing after climbing as high as the boundaries of 0.9560 on Wednesday, following the positive momentum of the USD.

All in all, this should pressure the USD/CHF implied vol curve lower”.
