    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The USD/CHF pair ran through fresh offers near the hourly 200-SMA in the early Asian trades and extends its gradual descent thereon; as renewed buying interest was seen around the CHF after the Swiss unemployment rate beat estimates.

    USD/CHF drops to hourly 20-SMA

    Currently, the USD/CHF pair trades -0.12% lower at 0.9725, retreating from fresh session lows struck at 0.9720, which is also the hourly 20-SMA. The USD/CHF pair remains undermined amid fresh demand for safe-havens such as the CHF amid wide-spread risk-aversion in the market after the Japanese stocks and US indices futures dropped.

    Adding to this, upbeat employment data from Switzerland further boost the local currency and dragged USD/CHF to fresh session lows near 0.97 handle. The jobless rate remained at 3.2% m/m in Sept, compared to the 3.2% seen in Aug and beating 3.4% estimates.

    Markets now await the US weekly jobless claims and the FOMC minutes which may provide fresh incentives on the pair.
