    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The USD/CHF pair stalled its 3-day rally and turned negative in the early European morning, as the greenback extends correction while the CHF bulls cheer upbeat Swiss trade figures.

    USD/CHF hovers around 10-DMA

    Currently, the USD/CHF pair loses 0.07% to trade at 0.9561, stuck between key hourly MAs. The USD/CHF pair erased a part of yesterday gains and edged slightly lower, after the Swiss franc received fresh boost from the better than expected Switzerland’s trade balance numbers.

    The Swiss trade surplus expanded to CHF3.05 billion in Sept, a rise compared to the CHF2.87 registered in August and beat expectations of a CHF2.51 billion expansion.

    While, broad based US dollar retreat after the recent strength backed by the solid show put up by the US housing data on Monday. Meanwhile, the USD index trades -0.07 lower at 94.94 levels.

    Markets will now track the sentiment on the European stocks ahead of the US datasets due for release later in the New York session.
