USD/CHF retreated from 8-month high

FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/CHF bumped at 0.9144 high, and reversed the move sliding to 0.9125 area at the moment.

Two drivers of the USD

The pair showed a decisive breakout of 0.91 resistance with the pair now targeting January highs. The US economy strength supported by more aggressive stance of the FOMC members is the key reason of the move. However, the euro weakness may also add some pressure on the Swissy, as these two currencies have shown strong correlation recently. Scheduled for release today series of the US reports may help the pair to go further provided most readings come out above expectations. The next target to the upside may lie at 0.9152.
