Fundamental Situation

Tuesday's U.S. budget deal, which downplays the risk of another government shutdown, has removed one element of uncertainty that it boosts the likelihood of the Federal Reserve beginning to taper asset purchases at its meeting on December 17-18, which could give rise to market volatility in the near-term, CNBC citing strategists reported on Wednesday.

Though US dollar seems under pressure despite tapering speculations, however, this deal shows that things are still very much in favor of US dollar and it should be a matter of relief for all USD pairs. Today US Treasury Sec Law is also scheduled to speak in US session.

Tomorrow Swiss National Bank (SNB) is to hold an important press conference during London session followed by benchmark interest rate decision, traders dealing in CHF pairs will be monitoring this development carefully.
