The positive news is that factory activity continues to run solid in Switzerland based on the indications here. However, it is but a small part of the Swiss economy, which relies majority – almost 3/4 – on the services sector. Not a major release that is going to change the outlook for the swissie or the SNB.

Forex – Yuan Gains Despite Weak Industrial Profit; U.S. Dollar Slips Ahead of Fed

© Reuters.  © Reuters.

Investing.com – The Chinese yuan gained on Monday in Asia even after official data showed China’s industrial profits fell for the second straight month. The U.S. Dollar traded slightly lower amid dovish Fed expectations.

The pair was down 0.1% to 6.7374 at 1:21 AM ET (06:21 GMT). The gain in yuan came even after the National Bureau of Statistics reported earlier in the morning that profits of big Chinese industrial companies fell 1.9% on year to 680.83 billion yuan ($ 100.94 billion) in December.

In November, industrial profits declined 1.8% from a year earlier. It was the first contraction in profits in nearly three years.

For the full year of 2018, China’s industrial profit rose 10.3% to 6.64 trillion yuan ($ 986.37 billion), easing from 2017’s 21%.

The weak data, however, have not had any bearish impact on the yuan, which strengthened against the greenback.

The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) set the yuan reference rate at 6.7472 to the dollar on Monday,from a previous fix of 6.7941.

Meanwhile, the that tracks the greenback against a basket of other currencies was down 0.1% at 95.400.

The Fed will conclude a two-day policy meeting on Wednesday and is widely expected to hold rates steady after raising them in December for the fourth time in 2018. The U.S. central bank has indicated that it will hike rates twice this year, but some officials have taken a more dovish tone over the past two months or so, putting the dollar under pressure.

Powell also announced that he would hold a press conference after each policy meeting, a change from the previous quarterly schedule.

Meanwhile, the ongoing trade negotiations between the U.S. and China will also be in the spotlight as Chinese officials will arrive in Washington on Wednesday to continue trade talks with the U.S. aimed at resolving the long-running trade war between the two countries.

Traders will be watching for any hints of progress as the two sides try to agree on a deal before a deadline on March 1. If a deal is not reached by then, the U.S. could raise import tariffs on $ 200 billion worth of Chinese goods to 25% from 10%.

Elsewhere, the pair was down 0.2% at 109.34, while the pair and the pair gained 0.1% and 0.3% respectively.
