USD/CHF aims for 12th bullish day, DAX on the ropes: European open

The DAX finds itself at a 6-month low with Wall Street indices, with DAX futures also pointing to a weak open. Yields need to pull back for it to stand any chance of recovering, and if they do it may even take some steam out of the USD/CHF rally which is trying to tally up its 12th consecutive bullish day.

Dollar analysis: EUR/USD, USD/CHF, USD/JPY outlook – Forex Friday

The US dollar was coming under a bit of pressure in the first half of Friday’s session, but after Thursday’s sharp rally it remained to be seen if the selling had any real momentum behind it. The Fed’s favorite inflation measure – core PCE – came in a touch softer but this was offset by a stronger-than-expected personal spending data. Investors were looking forward to another very busy week for macro data and central banks.

King Dollar Returns

The dollar is finally managing to show relative strength after weeks of indecisive price action. The US currency had been rising strongly in recent days against all the major currencies, except the likes of the euro, pound and Swiss franc. But at the start of this week, we have seen a sharp fall in the EUR/USD and a big rally in the USD/CHF. At the time of this writing, the dollar was also rising noticeably against the yen, pound and the Australian dollar. Bucking the trend was the Canadian dollar, which was supported by a stabilising price of oil. The Dollar Index was therefore up for the second consecutive day and above its 200-day moving average again.
