QCAM Insight

What the Swiss franc is telling us. The recovery of the euro last year gave the Swiss franc and the SNB some breathing room. This year, however, the tables have again turned. For the franc, it is not only developments with EURUSD that are crucial but also what happens in Europe. In our view, the CHF has more upside potential. Our conclusion of the Swiss franc.
