The market overview lets you quickly compare price movements on different timescales.
The overview shows three gauges, for the price movement during the last 60 minutes, 24 hours, and 5 days.
Each gauge shows the current price in relation to the high-low range (with prices). A gauge which is
mostly blue means that the current price is towards the top end of the range; orange means that the price
is towards the lower end of the range. The inner bar then shows the open price for the period, and the
corresponding % change.
Below the gauges are three simple candle charts, letting you compare short-term market activity on
the M5, M15 and H1 timeframes.
The USDCHF is the currency pair of the U.S. dollar and Swiss franc and trades two currencies considered safehavens.
Trading the USD/CHF currency pair is also known as trading the "Swissie."
The pair is affected by factors that influence the value of the U.S. dollar and/or the Swiss franc in relation to each
other and other currencies. Employment data and gross domestic product (GDP), from both countries, are some of
the economic indicators that have a significant impact on the currency pair.Although after the SNB lifted the peg with
its currency with the EUR back in January 2015, the CHF has partially lost attractive in turmoil times, with speculative
interest more inclined then to buy the JPY or Gold. With sentiment in risk-off mode, the American dollar tends to
weaken more than any other safe-haven asset.
