GBPCHF to fall throughout June

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.

Will next months vote create volatility for the Swiss Franc?

Next month on the 10th of June there will be a key vote in Switzerland.

Last month UK economic data disappointing which sent shock waves

GBPCHF exchange rates fall below 1.30 but for how long? (Tom Holian)

The Pound has remained in a fairly tight range against the Swiss Franc as we begin the week with little economic data due out today. Tomorrow morning brings with it the latest UK inflation data for both month on month and year on year. Inflation has been a hot topic for the UK and as inflation has been much higher than the government’s target for a long time then the Bank of England had no choice but to increase interest rates towards the end of last year to bring interest rates back up to where they were pre-Brexit. With inflation continuing to remain high I
