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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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).
