What is EUR/CHF trading?
The Euro/Swiss Franc relationship is a close one. With Switzerland located in central Europe, it finds itself surrounded by the Eurozone. And this ensures close economic and political ties that bind the two currencies. For intrigued investors, the EUR/CHF forex pair is one of the foremost "cross pairs" on the market. In real terms, neither of the values are based on the US Dollar. The Euro (EUR) and Swiss Franc (CHF) are two of the most-traded European currencies in the world. EUR/CHF trading involves taking up positions on the value of one EUR in CHF. If the EUR/CHF price shows 1.10, this is how much CHF is needed to buy one EUR. The pair is one of the most interesting forex relationships due to a strong correlation between the two currencies.
Key drivers of EUR/CHF prices
The strong correlation between EUR/CHF means both tend to increase in value against USD at the same time. This is an important point to bear in mind if you trade EUR/CHF – not least if a portfolio also contains USD pairs. The geographic location of Switzerland has a key role in this. It enjoys strong ties with the Eurozone and growth in either tends to be replicated in the other. CHF is regarded as a safe haven currency too. When you trade EUR/CHF, you may not always benefit from the same liquidity and volatility as other pairs. But EUR/CHF trading can prove to be highly attractive during times of economic uncertainty. In addition, it isn't unusual for there to be long trends (upward or downward) in the EUR/CHF price.
