FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The USD/CHF tested the 0.9400 psychological level as support after the decline seen ahead of the European opening and having reached 0.9432 high in mid-Asian session.

The market is now lifting the pair back up, but it is still edging lower on the day, by -0.08% ( GMT ), and will be while below 0.9420. Industrial production in France, Italy and Greece surprised the market by improving in August, by +1.5% (MoM) in France, by +1.7% (MoM) and from -7.2% to -5.2% (YoY) in Italy, and from -4% to +2% (YoY) in Greece.

"Ideally we would like to see a close above here (0.9399/.9400) to confirm the break, but with technical indicators also turning more positive we are prepared to just go with the break", wrote Commerzbank analyst Karen Jones.
