Instrument description

This is the exchange rate of US dollars versus the Swiss Franc. Less liquid than the euro and the pound, the Swiss franc is commonly-viewed by traders as a safe haven - a currency to turn to in times of uncertainty. However, forecasting the relative performance of the Swiss franc to the US dollar isn’t straightforward, as the US dollar is also seen as a safe haven. Switzerland is an international hub of private banking, insurance and investment management, with an extremely high standard of living. During less volatile periods, traders should note that the Swiss franc generally has a very high correlation to the euro.
