The Swiss National Bank kept its ultra-loose monetary policy in place on Thursday, citing the "fragile" exchange rate situation and rising international trade tensions and protectionism. The SNB kept its target range for the three-month London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) at -1.25 to -0.25 percent, as unanimously forecast by 36 economists polled by Reuters. The central bank also kept the interest rate it charges on sight deposits at -0.75 percent, adding it remained ready to intervene in the foreign currency markets to counter a rise in the Swiss franc.

The initiative, called under Switzerland's system of direct democracy after gathering more than 100,000 votes, wants to make the Swiss National Bank (SNB) the only authority in the country authorised to create money in the country. The plan, if accepted could have repercussions beyond Switzerland's borders by removing a practice which underpins most of bank lending in the world.
