Gold lower as Swiss referendum looms; key level being tested

Updated -  Nov 28, 2014 7:25:00 AM


As reflected in the falling price of gold over the past three sessions, traders are clearly not feeling confident that Switzerland will vote ‘Yes’ on Sunday’s referendum on the Swiss National Bank’s gold reserves. The proposal would require the SNB to hold gold reserves equivalent to 20% of its total assets. Not only that, but all Swiss gold held with foreign central banks would need to be repatriated and the SNB would never be allowed  [...] Continue Reading


Recap: Swiss gold referendum: what does this mean for EURCHF?

Updated -  Nov 28, 2014 6:05:00 AM


On Sunday 30th November the Swiss people will go to the polls to decide on a referendum on the Swiss Central Bank’s (the SNB) gold reserves. The proposal put forward by the right wing Swiss People’s Party would require the SNB to hold gold reserves equivalent to 20% of their total assets, all Swiss gold held with foreign central banks would need to be repatriated, and the SNB would need to commit to never selling  [...] Continue Reading

EURCHF: Knocking on the SNB’s Front Door at 1.20 Floor Street

Updated -  Nov 11, 2014 8:25:00 AM


While I’ve had November 30th marked in my calendar for months now (it’s my wedding anniversary), FX traders from around the globe are starting to place a big red “X” on the day. That’s because Switzerland’s population will vote on a key referendum that day, with potentially huge implications for global markets: Swiss voters will decide whether the Swiss National Bank should increase its holdings of gold from 8% of FX reserves currently to 20%.  [...] Continue Reading


EUR/CHF: Floored Again

Updated -  Oct 24, 2014 10:49:47 AM


The North American trading session activity has been rather light so far as the lack of US data releases and the end to a busy week is keeping a lot of the usual liquidity at bay.  The one nugget of information that was released wasn’t all that encouraging for the US housing market though as New Home Sales failed to live up to expectations of 470k with a 467k print.  “That’s not that bad” is  [...] Continue Reading


USD/CHF rally pauses as SNB disappoints, but bullish trend intact

Updated -  Sep 18, 2014 7:45:00 AM


The Swiss National Bank today decided to maintain the ceiling on the franc at 1.20 per euro and its interest-rate target range at 0 to 0.25 per cent. This was in line with the expectations. However, hopes that the SNB would impose negative deposit rates (like the ECB) were not satisfied and this led to a sharp rally in the franc. Nevertheless, the Bank stressed its “utmost determination” to do what it takes to keep  [...] Continue Reading


GBPCHF Pressing Channel Top Ahead of Scotland Referendum and SNB

Updated -  Sep 16, 2014 2:20:00 PM


FX traders are about to enter an action-packed next 72 hours, with BOE Minutes, monetary policy decisions from the Fed and SNB, the ECB’s TLTRO auction, and of course, the result of Scotland’s highly-anticipated independence referendum all scheduled for release by the end of the week. While all markets will be impacted by the upcoming Fed and ECB announcements, GBPCHF could be particularly volatile due to the SNB decision and Scottish Referendum.  [...] Continue Reading


EURCHF Surges to 1.2115 Resistance as SNB Considers Going Negative

Updated -  Sep 10, 2014 2:00:00 PM


On Monday, we shared our fundamental and technical outlook on EURCHF, concluding that, “...the SNB may eventually be forced to enact further rate cuts or nontraditional monetary policy measures” to stave off deflationary pressures and that the pair may bounce to converging resistance at 1.2115 (see “EURCHF: The SNB Remains Resolute about 1.20 Floor” below for more). As it turns out, SNB comments and the price action over the last 48 hours have borne out  [...] Continue Reading


EURCHF: will the SNB defend the 1.20 peg?

Updated -  Aug 27, 2014 10:05:00 AM


Since the Swiss National Bank (SNB) imposed its peg in EUR/CHF, this cross has only traded below 1.20 a handful of times, and each time it has bounced off this important level of support. In the three years that the peg has been in place, the market hasn’t tested the SNB’s resolve with any gusto. The market has seemed to accept that you don’t push EUR/CHF below 1.20, otherwise the SNB will act and you  [...] Continue Reading


EURCHF Pressing 20-Month Lows, But 1.20 Floor Remains Firm

Updated -  Aug 19, 2014 8:40:00 AM


Volatility in EURCHF has been extremely compressed over the past few years, so we wouldn’t have blamed any traders for avoiding opening this note altogether. For those who have made it this far though, the recent price action is presenting a rare trading opportunity in the typically quiet pair. At the end of last week, EURCHF ticked down below the 1.2100 handle for the first time since January 2013. The primary catalyst for this  [...] Continue Reading
