The USD/CHF trade is sharply bearish to drop until the 0.8885 level, holding above a support level of 0.8880 amid a stronger U.S. dollar. The tussle between China and the U.S. kept gaining market attention and challenged the market risk tone. As per the latest report, the Trump administration was preparing sanctions on at least a dozen Chinese officials in the wake of their alleged role in China’s disqualification of elected opposition legislators in Hong Kong.
As in result, the broad-based U.S. dollar managed to stop its early day losses and picked some bids during the early European session as the traders started to cheering the risk-off marker mood. However, the U.S. dollar bullish bias was rather unaffected by the worsening coronavirus (COVID-19) conditions in the U.S., or the disappointing U.S. jobs data, which raised expectations of fresh economic stimulus measures. However, the gains in the U.S. dollar turned out to be one of the leading factors that help the currency pair to limit its deeper losses. Meanwhile, the U.S. Dollar Index that tracks the greenback against a bucket of other currencies rose to 90.850.
On the other hand, the optimism over treatment for the highly infectious coronavirus becomes the key factor that helps the market trading sentiment stop its bearish rally, which might support the currency pair. The hopes of vaccine fueled further after the reports suggesting that the U.K.is set to become the 1st-country to roll out BNT162b2, the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer Inc (NYSE: PFE) and BioNTech SE (F:22UAy), this week.
In the absence of the key data/events on the day, the market traders will keep their eyes on RBA Gov Lowe Speaks. In addition to this, the updates about the U.S. stimulus package will also be key to watch. In the meantime, the risk catalyst like geopolitics and the virus woes, not to forget the Brexit, will not lose their importance.
