Switzerland's Real Retail Sales were released with lower news than expected from the previous figure of 1.8% to -0.2% while forecasting figures were expected to show at 2.3%; making it a bit of a struggle for the swiss currency. 

Further news were released about Swiss PMI, just after the Retail Sales.  The Purchasing Manager's Index figures were also lower than expected, being announced at 58.4 for April from 59.3 from its previous release in March; while expectations were circulating the value of 58.8.
