INVESTORS  subscription news Facebook (FB+1.4%) is setting up a subscription-based news product that it will start testing in October, the company’s Campbell Brown told the Digital Publishing Innovation Summit.

The product looks to be built on its Instant Articles and would call for setting up a paywall requiring readers to subscribe after reading 10 articles. It would also still steer readers to publication home pages to promote digital subscriptions directly to the publishers.

“One of the things we heard in our initial meetings from many newspapers and digital publishers is that ‘We want a subscription product — we want to be able to see a paywall in Facebook,’ ” Brown said, without elaborating on whether/how Facebook would share payments for its paywall.

Facebook shares are at an all-time high today of $165.25.

CURRENCY INVESTORS Swiss Franc Midday Fall on Wednesday July 19

Swiss Franc | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast | News

CURRENCY INVESTORS Swiss Franc Midday The USDCHF decreased 0.0009 or 0.09% to 0.9545 on Wednesday July 19 from 0.9553 in the previous trading session. Historically, the Swiss Franc reached an all time high of 3.88 in April of 1972 and a record low of 0.72 in August of 2011.

Although the greenback recovered after falling to 0.9523 yesterday, near term downside risk remains and below said support would extend recent selloff to 0.9500 and possibly towards 0.9475-80, however, loss of near term downward momentum should prevent sharp fall below latter level and reckon 0.9440-50 would hold from here, risk from there is seen for another rebound later.

In view of this, would be prudent to stand aside for now. Above 0.9575 (38.2% Fibonacci retracement of 0.9659-0.9523) would bring a stronger recovery to previous support at 0.9595 but reckon upside would be limited to 0.9605-10 (61.8% Fibonacci retracement) and resistance at 0.9635 should remain intact, bring another decline later.
