Swiss Franc Tries to Recover From Two-Month Low Amid Retail Sales Crash

The Swiss franc is trying to recover from a two-month low against the US dollar as investors pour into the currency amid global economic and political uncertainty. Despite the central bank’s best efforts to install a ceiling on the franc’s appreciation, traders are still seeking safe-haven assets in the event of another market meltdown, which some Wall Street titans have warned about in recent weeks.

Swiss Franc Weakens As Manufacturing Slumps, Capped by SNB Intervention

The Swiss franc is weakening on Tuesday as the latest manufacturing figures highlighted an industry that is in a sharp decline. The franc’s slide was exacerbated by the central bank’s foreign exchange interventions to prevent currency appreciation. With Switzerland reopening in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic, could the economy rebound in the second half of 2020 and elevate the franc even more?

Swiss Franc Among Strongest Despite Negative Domestic Data

The Swiss franc was one of the strongest currencies today, rising against almost all other most-traded rivals. The only exception was the Great Britain pound, which managed to hold its ground versus the franc. Even very negative domestic data did not prevent the currency of Switzerland from rising.

Euro Mixed After Collapse of German Business Climate, EU Rescue Package Disagreement

Euro Recovers After Mixed Economic Data, Supported by Plans for Easing Lockdown

The euro opened sharply higher today but has erased losses against the majority of its most-traded peers by now. The traders’ cautious mood was weighing on the currency, but hopes about an end to lockdown in the foreseeable future were supporting the euro. Eurozone macroeconomic data released over Monday’s trading session was mixed.

Swiss Franc Slips As SNB’s Total Sight Deposits Surge Again

The Swiss franc is sliding against the US dollar and the euro on Tuesday as the central bank’s sight deposit holdings surged by their second-highest level in 12 months. For more than a year, Switzerland has been actively trying to depreciate the franc’s value as investors continue to pour into the traditional safe-haven asset, even as financial markets rebound. The Swiss franc has significantly appreciated throughout the turbulence, affecting the manufacturing sector and overall exporting industry.

Swiss Franc Extends Fall Against US Dollar on SNB Interventions

The Swiss franc is slumping on Tuesday as the central bank continues to intervene in foreign exchange markets and control the value of the currency. Despite being a conventional safe-haven asset for global investors, the franc’s appeal might diminish as the nation potentially slips into a recession.

Euro Gains on German Factory Orders, US Dollar’s Woes

The euro fell against safer currencies, like the Swiss franc and the Japanese yen, but gained on other most-traded rivals, including the US dollar, the Great Britain pound, and commodity currencies. Surprisingly, that did not include the New Zealand dollar, which turned out to be one of the strongest currencies during Friday’s trading session.

Risk Aversion, Better-than-Expected GDP Unable to Help Swiss Franc

The Swiss franc was surprisingly soft today even though the deadly coronavirus infection continued to spread across the globe, spooking investors and increasing demand for safe-haven assets. Positive macroeconomic reports released in Switzerland on Monday and Tuesday did little to help the currency. The Swissie was soft against almost all currencies, except for the Canadian dollar, which fell today despite rising prices for crude oil, and the US dollar, which collapsed after […]

Euro Falls to Three-Year Low vs. Franc on Coronavirus Fears, Economic Data

The euro was weak today, falling for the sixth consecutive day to the lowest level in three years against the Swiss franc. Risk aversion caused by an unexpected surge of infected people in China was weighing on the shared 19-nation currency, while eurozone macroeconomic data was not helping as well.
