Current trend

Yesterday US dollar strengthened against Swiss franc in view of the tax reform bill passed by both Houses of the US Congress. The only thing left now is the signature of President Trump. USD was also supported by strong sales data in the secondary housing market. The indicator increased by 5.6% while the economists expected growth by no more than 0.9%.

The growth of Swiss trading balance proficiency slowed down in November. It was announced after today’s release of the trading balance data. Still, it had almost no impact on the rate of franc.

The main event of today will be the release of annual data on US GDP for Q3 (15:30 GMT+2). In view of recent growth of retail sales it is likely the data will be reconsidered and increased giving the dollar considerable support. The market is expected to be highly volatile.
