USDCHF slumps downwards, but will it last?
“China recent lockdown and protest sparks risk-off sentiment, shining the limelight on safe-havens.”
Swiss franc aims to thread lower as the market was spooked by civil unrest in China due to harsh anti-Covid restrictions. Last weekend, scuffle occurred in several cities in China after rising coronavirus cases prompted local government to enact total lockdown. Recent happenings have dialled down market expectation towards China economy and at the same time, raising the demand for safe-haven assets.

ZFX Analyst’s Comment
With the pair being exposed to the last line of defense, we expect bears to push downwards even further. A close below the nearest support may validate such hypothesis.
