Greek Pin Action: Will GBP Take on CHF’s Safe Haven Mantle?

Updated  Jun 29, 2015 10:55:00 AM

As Greece’s debt negotiations deteriorated this weekend, traders piled in to buy the “safe-haven” Swiss franc. In turn, the rapid appreciation in the value of the franc prompted the Swiss National Bank (SNB) to intervene in the FX market to stabilize the gains in its currency. In explaining the move, SNB Chairman Thomas Jordan stated, "We have always said that we are active in the foreign exchange market if necessary…[a] situation like we experienced over  [...] Continue Reading ...

SNB: don’t expect a new EURCHF ceiling any time soon

Updated  Mar 19, 2015 8:30:00 AM

The Swiss National Bank (SNB) concluded its latest meeting today with no new policy decisions, but a hefty dose of fresh rhetoric. Some in the market had expected the SNB to implement a new peg, potentially to 1.10 in EURCHF, to limit swissie strength, however they were disappointed. The SNB didn’t change rates, deposit rates are already at -0.75%, but they did say that they would intervene directly in the FX market to stem swissie  [...] Continue Reading ...

EURCHF: A Valiant Effort

Updated  Mar 17, 2015 4:08:28 PM

Tensions are getting tighter around North America as we await the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy decision tomorrow and markets are beginning to tighten up because of it.  While the general consensus is that the Fed will drop the “patient” verbiage from their statement, what they replace it with is the big debate.  If they insinuate that rate increases could come as soon as June, the USD is likely to rise and stocks fall; however, if  [...] Continue Reading ...

USDCHF: Could the SNB Steal the Fed’s Headlines by Cutting This Week?

Updated  Mar 17, 2015 2:40:00 PM

Though the forex markets have been open for less than 48 hours this week, traders have already had to navigate comments from a number of the world’s most important central banks. Yesterday, ECB President Mario Draghi struck an optimistic note on the Eurozone economy, stating that “[m]ost indicators suggest a sustained recovery is taking hold,” and that “[c]onfidence among firms and consumers is rising. Growth forecasts have been revised upwards. And bank lending is improving  [...] Continue Reading ...

Believe it or Not: USDCHF Just Hit Parity and is Trading Up on the Year

Updated  Mar 10, 2015 1:40:00 PM

Less than two months after the Swiss National Bank shocked the market by dropping its cap on the franc, leading to an immediate 20% appreciation in the currency against the US dollar, King Dollar has clawed its way back to trade above the yearly open at 0.9936. If someone had predicted that after the SNB’s decision in mid-January, they would no doubt be locked in a mental institution by now, but that fact just serves  [...] Continue Reading ...

Choo Choo! USDCHF Train Still Heading North

Updated  Mar 4, 2015 1:50:00 PM

Three weeks ago, we mentioned that many traders were taking a “once bitten, twice shy” attitude toward the Swiss franc after the SNB’s historic decision to drop its cap on the franc in mid-January (See the second article, “Another Cup of Tea for EURCHF Bulls” here). EURCHF has since stalled out, perhaps on fears ahead of tomorrow’s ECB meeting and press conference, but USDCHF has continued to truck along, breaking above the 61.8% Fibonacci  [...] Continue Reading ...

EURCHF: Cracks beneath the Bullish Veneer

Updated  Feb 24, 2015 1:50:00 PM

A week ago today, we published a report highlighting a bullish cup-and-handle pattern on EURCHF, concluding that, “as long as EURCHF holds above its near-term bullish trend line (currently near 1.0580), the path of least resistance will remain higher for EURCHF” (see “Another Cup of Tea for EURCHF Bulls?” below). While the pair has not yet managed to rally to the 50% Fibonacci retracement and measured move target around 1.0860, the bullish trend line continues  [...] Continue Reading ...

EURCZK: Next to Pull the Peg? **UPDATE**

Updated  Feb 18, 2015 3:16:54 PM

We interrupt this Greece-watching-Federal-Reserve-worrying-finger-nail-biting market dynamic to bring another matter to your attention.  One of the other nations closely related to the European Monetary Union which has a currency pegged to the euro is making waves by potentially indicating that changes will be made that would banish that peg to the annals of history.  Of course, as you have likely figured out already, I am talking about the Czech Koruna and its established floor  [...] Continue Reading ...

USDCHF: Just Go With It?

Updated  Feb 17, 2015 3:24:36 PM

Since January 15th of this year, when the Swiss National Bank made the notorious decision to pull out the rug on their self-imposed 1.20 floor in the EUR/CHF, there has been one relatively consistent pattern that has developed across all CHF currency pairs; they are all gradually clawing their way back.  My colleague Matt Weller highlighted one such scenario earlier today in the dreaded EUR/CHF, which has carved out a bullish cup and handle  [...] Continue Reading ...

GBPUSD: Down, but Not Out

Updated  Feb 9, 2015 11:51:25 AM

It has been a relatively quiet morning for North American trade due to the lack of economic releases out of the US, but that doesn’t mean that the noise created at the end of last week, and over the weekend, is being ignored.  The stellar employment report on Friday and the return of Grexit (Greek exit of the Eurozone) talk over the weekend has markets buzzing with anticipation of what’s to come.  Investors  [...] Continue Reading ...
