The options market turns most bullish on the USD/CHF in over a week, per the latest data from Reuters.
One-month risk reversal (RR) of USD/CHF, a gauge of calls to puts, snaps a three-day downtrend to rise the most since November 01, per Reuters. That said, the latest USD/CHF RR is +0.150 versus the -0.050 figure marked on Friday.

This could be linked to the market’s anxiety over the Fed reshuffle, US stimulus and tapering tantrums.
