Comment:
The prevalent cautions mood underpinned CHF’s safe-haven demand.
The USD remained on the defensive amid firming Fed rate cut expectations.
The downside remained limited amid a modest uptick in the US bond yields.
The USD/CHF pair edged lower on Friday and eroded a major part of the previous session positive move,
albeit managed to find some support ahead of the 0.9900 handle.

Having climbed to over one-week tops, around the 0.9930 region, the pair witnessed a modest pullback and for now,
