The US watchlist does not affect ability to intervene, we have good dialogue with the US.
We explain situation carefully to US, they understand Swiss position.
We do not manipulate currency; we intervene to steer monetary conditions in Switzerland.
Smaller interest rate differential is key reason for negative rates.
USD/CHF is a few pips off the daily highs at 0.9695, as markets digest the latest comments from the SNB Head.
