What is USD/CHF trading?
Few forex pairs can match the enduring popularity of the United States Dollar/Swiss Franc pair. It is the choice of numerous investors – no matter their level of experience. Based on research from the Bank for International Settlements in 2019, the United States Dollar (USD) and Swiss Franc (CHF) are among the most liquid and actively traded currencies in the world. As such, it's no wonder the USD/CHF pair has a strong presence on the global forex market. It shows the value of USD against CHF and is often regarded as a safe haven by traders in times of uncertainty and instability. One unique feature that can make USD/CHF such a stable choice is the long-standing neutrality and resilience of Switzerland and its national economy
Key drivers of USD/CHF prices
With FXOpen, trade USD/CHF with CFDs. It might not necessarily be the most liquid or volatile forex option – but don't be fooled into thinking it offers little potential for prospective investors. Historically, in times of global uncertainty, the value of CHF has appreciated as money flows in to Switzerland pushing up demand for the Swiss Franc. As a key banking centre in Europe, there are strong economic ties between Switzerland and the US. So, traders should note key indicators from both nations when you trade USD/CHF. Interest rates can be an important one. In recent years, the Swiss National Bank has imposed one of the world's lowest interest rates (-0.75%) – a reflection of the strong Swiss economy on exporters.
