    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The Swiss franc finds support from the persisting risk-off markets profile extended into Europe, keeping USD/CHF near the session lows.

    USD/CHF rejected at 1.0250

    Currently, the USD/CHF pair trades -0.11% lower at 1.0220, hovering close to fresh session lows struck at 1.0216 levels in late-Asia. The traditional safe-haven CHF remains bid in the European morning, as the weak Chinese PMI-fuelled risk-aversion continues to keep markets on the back foot and hence, drags USD/CHF lower.

    Moreover, the renewed sell-off in the black gold, as markets gradually outprice any supply cut from the cartel - OPEC, also rattled investors’ confidence once again and therefore, boosted the safe-haven bids for the Swiss currency.

    Meanwhile, attention now turns towards the US docket, with the ISM manufacturing and Core PCE price index to be reported later today.
