The USD dropped to its two-year lows against the Swiss franc. 0.9577, where it is now, was last visited by the USD/CHF in March 2018. That doesn’t change much in historical terms (this level is an average the currency has been around for the last 6 years) but marks an important tactical checkpoint. At least, it makes full sense in the context of the USD’s weak recent performance against other currencies and the US Fed’s interest rate cut.
Looking ahead, there is full potential for the CHF to stay strong against the USD as we already know that the fundamentals backing up the US economy are hardly helping the US dollar to keep value, at least for the current moment. It is very possible, therefore, that the movement of the USD/CHF will be moderately directed to the downside, more probably aiming at the technical levels mentioned below, in the short-term.
