About USD/CHF

The pair reflects how many Swiss Francs are needed to purchase one American dollar. Both currencies are considered safe-havens, although after the SNB lifted the peg with its currency with the EUR back in January 2015, the CHF has partially lost attractive in turmoil times, with speculative interest more inclined then to buy the JPY or Gold. With sentiment in risk-off mode, the American dollar tends to weaken more than any other safe-haven asset.
