    FXStreet (Córdoba) - USD/CHF made another attempt to break above the 1.0085/90 area during the European session, but was rejected once again and pulled back to the flat line, with the latest round of US data having virtually no effect on the greenback.

    US initial jobless claims came in at 276K in the week ended Nov 6, slightly above the 270K expected by analysts. However, USD/CHF continued to steadily trade around 1.0040.

    USD/CHF rose to a daily peak of 1.0084, but stalled a few pips shy its March high of 1.0089, and erased intraday gains over the last hours.
