    The decline of the US dollar continued on Thursday for the fourth day in a row. USD/CHF dropped back below the parity level and tumbled to 0.9930, hitting the lowest level since January 11.

    Afterwards, the pair bounced modestly to the upside and it was trading at 0.9960, down 0.81% for the day.

    USD/CHF dramatic decline

    From the level it had at the beginning of the week USD/CHF has fallen almost 300 pips, making a significant reversal. In the way down the pair broke a short-term uptrend line, fell below the 20-day moving average and today it could post the lowest daily close in almost a month.
