Forex: USD/CHF pressing higher

The USD/CHF is moving higher as the European session unfolds. A first attempt found resistance at 0.9235, and after returning to the opening price zone, the pair came back to its highs, with intentions of breaking higher.

Ahead in the day, investors will be eyeing US NY Empire State manufacturing, TIC flows, Industrial Production and Reuters/Michigan consumer sentiment to better price the greenback and the FX market. The G20 meeting will remain the main focus of the day. Headlines may trigger moves.
