LONDON Jan 3 The dollar rose to a three-week
high against the Swiss franc on Thursday as waning euphoria over
a U.S. budget deal prompted investors to buy back the more
liquid dollar and on talk of weak Swiss data.
The Swiss KOF indictor, due at 0800 GMT, is forecast to fall
to 1.35 in December from 1.50 previously.
The dollar rose 0.4 percent on the day to 0.9214
francs, according to EBS data.
The euro was also up marginally on the day at
1.2106 francs, near a 3-week high of 1.21075 francs.
