The frank remained flat in the major pairs except for the EUR/CHF pair, in which the franc fell with a gap of 75 points. However, by 11:00 (GMT +3) the gap already closed. The Swiss National Bank intervention is likely to be confirmed.

Today a small block of U.S. news is released from 4:45 to 6:30 p.m. (GMT +3), from which ISM Non-Manufacturing and Labor Market Conditions Indexes for June should be considered.
