GBP/CHF Rates Drop Ahead of Christmas Slowdown (Matthew Vassallo)

GBP/CHF rates have dipped over the past week, as the markets start to slowdown ahead of the Christmas period.

Sterling has made steady gains against the Swiss Franc over the past month and although the spike has levelled this week, the Pound has certainly gained a foothold. Yesterday’s decision by the US Federal Reserve to raise their base rate from 0.25% to 0.5% did little to shift the value of GBP/CHF. However, with investors still digesting the outcome we may yet find it still has an effect.
