The USD/CHF pair continues its six-day losing spell and drops to near the psychological support of 0.9000. A steep sell-off in the Swiss Franc asset came due to the soft US Dollar as investors are anticipating that the Federal Reserve (Fed) will keep interest rates unchanged in November. This would buy some time to assess the impact of interest rate hikes till done.
S&P500 futures added some decent gains in the London session, portraying cheerful market sentiment due to fading hawkish Fed bets. Also, investors expect that the impact of the Israel-Hamas conflict would be lower if more players do not intervene. Apart from that, Israel is not an oil-rich nation, therefore, the consequences on the oil price could be limited.
In addition to the correction in the US Dollar, the 10-year US Treasury yields also dropped to near 4.56% from multi-year highs. Investors should be prepared for a volatile action in the US Dollar as the US inflation data will be published at 12:30 GMT.
