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

ECB Pin Action: Will Draghi’s Dovishness Force the SNB into Action?

Updated -  Jun 5, 2014 9:35:00 AM

For once, the marquee trading event of the week lived up to the hype. In its much-anticipated monetary policy meeting, the ECB chose to cut its official interest rate to record lows and became the first major central bank to take deposit rates negative, meaning that banks now must pay to deposit their funds with the ECB. While much of this bold action had already been priced in by the market, the fireworks truly  [...] Continue Reading

August ECB Rate Decision—Thursday, August 4, 2011

Updated -  Aug 3, 2011 3:00:00 PM

Research Note: Aug. ECB Rate Decision Summary Outlook: On Thursday August 4 at 0745EDT/1145GMT, the ECB is expected to announce a steady 1.50% interest rate decision, according to Bloomberg surveys. The main event will be the 0830EDT/1230GMT press briefing by ECB Pres. Trichet. We expect him to indicate that there will be no further rate hike at the September ECB meeting, likely using the ‘closely monitor all developments’ phrasing. July Eurozone CPI dropped from 2.7%  [...] Continue Reading
