GBPCHF to fall throughout June

Its a key month for Brexit negotiations as EU leaders are set to meet at the EU summit at the end of the month. At the time of writing this article MP’s within the House of Commons are voting on the amendments set out by the House of Lords and so far, MP’s are voting in favour of disregarding the lords amendments.

It’s being labelled as ‘Vollgeld’ and it pertains to whether the Swiss want to reform their monetary system in an unprecedented way. There hasn’t been much talk of this Referendum in the economic world outside of Switzerland because a ‘Yes’ vote is apparently highly unlikely.
