INFLUENTIAL INSTITUTIONS & PEOPLE FOR THE USD/CHF

On the other hand we found The Federal Reserve System (Fed) wich is the central banking system of the United States. Fed has two main targets: to keep unemployment rate to their lowest possible levels and inflation around 2%. The Federal Reserve System's structure is composed of the presidentially appointed Board of Governors, partially presidentially appointed Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). The FOMC organizes 8 meetings in a year and reviews economic and financial conditions. Also determines the appropriate stance of monetary policy and assesses the risks to its long-run goals of price stability and sustainable economic growth.

The Swiss National Bank conducts the country’s monetary policy as an independent central bank. It is obliged by the Constitution and by statute to act in accordance with the interests of the country as a whole. Its primary goal is to ensure price stability, while taking due account of economic developments. In so doing, it creates an appropriate environment for economic growth.

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.
