USDCHF is trading higher for 4 trading days and hits fresh 2019 high. The pair has broken major resistance 1.01285 high made on Nov 13th and hits fresh 5-month high. The jump was mainly due to US-China trade optimism and strong Chinese data has increased risk appetite.

The near term support is around 1.00750 (5-day MA) and any violation below will drag the pair till 1.0050/ 1.0020/1.000 (55- day EMA).
