I was about to post that I find the Asian session quite calm, compared to the GMT midday and this popped up on my news feeder:
BULLET: EURO-SWISS: Turnover in euro-Swiss on EBS is now to..
EURO-SWISS: Turnover in euro-Swiss on EBS is now E15.8bn, compared to
E1.5bn ahead of the alleged intervention.

EurUSD plunged 100 points on the Swiss action.
I guess the comments earlier about Forex not being a 'rigged' or 'manipulated' market were a bit premature
OK, the move is costing me, but it's a great opportunity to sell more dollars ahead of the FOMC.
edit to add:
"CABLE: Pressured back to $1.6510 as rate reacts to suggested SNB
intervention to buy dollar-Swiss (not confirmed), but rate able to
recover to $1.6540 as euro-Swiss and dollar-Swiss ease off pressured
highs of Chf1.5288/1.0910 respectively."
Looks like a shot across the bows for the dollar shorts.
