    Swiss to Join Dovish Global Shift as Franc Tightens Grip

    With the franc having touched a two-year high against the euro, SNB President Thomas Jordan and fellow policy makers are feeling the pressure from risks such as trade tensions, a German industrial slump, Italian politics and Brexit. It’s quite a difference from 2018, when the currency’s weakness provided an unused opportunity for raising the deposit rate from a record-low -0.75%. While no economist surveyed by Bloomberg expects a rate change on Thursday, there could be a tweak to its language on the franc.

If Trump doesn’t converge with the Mexicans and Chinese then the Fed start chopping and that has huge implications – gold bulls will be feeling a tad excited right here.

    Think Tank Tells Swiss National Bank to Launch Swiss Franc Token, Embrace DLT

    Switzerland’s national bank should work with large industry players to develop a Swiss franc token, according to a report by the Avenir Suisse think tank on June 4. Avenir Suisse is an independent privately funded think tank, with a yearly budget of reportedly 5 million Swiss francs ($5 million). Despite the opportunities that distributed ledger technology (DLT) is creating in the country’s finance industry — especially in trade finance, asset management and capital markets — researchers argue that the debate surrounding digitization is focused too much on the risks.

    FOREX-Mounting trade concerns pull dollar lower against yen, franc

    The U.S. dollar fell on Monday morning, hitting a 4-1/2 month low against the Japanese yen and a two-month low against the Swiss franc as President Donald Trump hardened his trade stance toward countries beyond China. Trade tensions have taken center stage in recent weeks as Trump has increased tariffs on Chinese imports, threatened to raise tariffs on Mexican imports and removed preferential trade treatment for India. The mounting tension has prompted investors to move out of riskier assets like U.S. stocks and into safe-havens like the yen and franc.

    FOREX-Swiss franc races to 2-year highs vs euro as trade concerns rise

    The Swiss franc rallied to its highest levels in nearly two years against the euro on Monday as U.S. President Donald Trump hardened his trade stance to countries beyond China, prompting investors to move into perceived safe-haven currencies. Trade tensions have grabbed centre stage for investors in recent weeks after Trump increased tariffs on Chinese imports, threatened to raise tariffs on Mexican imports and removed preferential trade treatment for India. Rising strains on trade have prompted investors to dump risky assets such as equities and flock to low-yielding currencies such as the yen and the franc with the latter flirting close to levels where the Swiss National Bank has traditionally intervened to keep the currency weak.

    FOREX-Yen, Swiss franc shine as trade tensions spark flight to safety

    The yen brushed a more than four-month high against the dollar on Monday and the Swiss franc rose as U.S. President Donald Trump's hard stance on trade broadened to countries beyond China, stoking investor demand for safe-haven assets. In a recent development, U.S. and Mexican officials were preparing for trade talks after Trump vowed to impose punitive tariffs on all Mexican goods in an intensifying dispute over migration. No one was really expecting it to the same extent they were with China," said Chris Weston, Melbourne-based head of research at foreign exchange brokerage Pepperstone.

    Dollar dips on increased expectations of a 2019 Fed rate cut

    The U.S. dollar fell on Monday after St. Louis Federal Reserve President James Bullard said an interest rate cut "may be warranted soon," given the rising economic risk posed by global trade tensions as well as weak U.S. inflation. Bullard said that while the Fed cannot respond to every change in the rapidly evolving trade feud, recent events like the unexpected announcement of new tariffs on Mexican imports have created "an environment of elevated uncertainty... that could feed back to U.S. macroeconomic performance" as the global economy slows. "Though we think the recent warning shot towards Mexico could be resolved, the road ahead on the global trade front is likely to remain challenged until the G20 later this month," wrote Mark McCormick, global head of foreign exchange strategy at TD Securities.

    FOREX-Yen, franc firm as trade tensions fester; pound sinks

    The Japanese yen and the Swiss franc firmed on Wednesday as risk appetite remained weak in the backdrop of festering trade tensions between the United States and China. While risky assets heaved a sigh of relief overnight after the United States eased trade restrictions on Chinese telecommunications equipment maker Huawei Technologies, the lack of a significant breakthrough has kept investors on edge. "We are still skeptical over a long-lasting recovery," said Charalambos Pissouros, a senior markets analyst at JFD group.
