The Swiss franc bulls in control after the testimony of Swiss National Bank (SNB) Chairman Chris Jordan on Wednesday.
Jordan said that the Swiss franc (CHF) is a safe-haven asset and continuation of a negative monetary policy is necessary to justify the inflation parameter.
He added that the targeted inflation figure at 2% has been well maintained and any temporary rise above the targeted figure will be diluted quickly by SNB intervention.
Recovery in the pair has been rejected at 200-DMA on the daily and 55-EMA on the weekly charts. Break below 50-DMA and daily cloud will plummet prices.
