    FXStreet (Córdoba) - USD/CHF resumed the rise and climbed to fresh 1-week highs on Thursday as the US dollar continued to strengthen as investors digest the Federal Reserve decision to raise interest rates for first time in nearly a decade.

    There is only second-tier data scheduled for the rest of the day. US will release jobless claims and the Philly Fed manufacturing index.
