Euro jumps vs Swiss franc after hitting record low

NEW YORK, April 1 (Reuters) - The euro jumped to session highs against the Swiss franc on Thursday after falling to record lows.

Traders cited talk of intervention by the Swiss National Bank to lift the euro against the franc. They also said there was also some SNB activity in the dollar/Swiss franc pair.

The SNB was not immediately available for comment.

The euro fell to record lows below 1.4150 francs EURCHF= but surged to session highs at 1.4410 right after. It was last at 1.4329, up 0.6 percent.

The dollar rose against the Swiss franc to 1.0561 francs CHF=.
