USDCHF Comments:

  • Growth Aces Research Team:

    Surprising action of the SNB last week changed our forecasts for the USD/CHF pair. GrowthAces.com raised the predictions, mainly for the short term.

  • Jameel Ahmad:

    The Swiss Central Bank finally followed through with previous threats and introduced negative interest rates. The only is issue is that it is likely not enough. The Euro is set to resume its weakness, which means the Swiss will be pressured further to defend the 1.20 EURCHF floor. It also can't be ruled out that emerging market economies impacted by the drop in oil will not be encouraged into buying CHF. When the euro weakens further in the new year, we are looking at the USDCHF reaching parity.

  • Richard Perry:

    The SNB taking rates negative should provide further fuel for upside as the US remains on the course towards tightening potentially in mid-2015

  • Scott Barkley:

    Correction then continuation

  • Yohay Elam:

    The franc remains close to the euro despite the SNB's emergency move.
