Key economic data points that move this pair include employment rate, GDP and inflation. In addition, changes to the monetary policy by the Federal Reserve and the Swiss National Bank (SNB) also affect the value of the US dollar and the Swiss franc.But more importantly, this currency pair makes quick moves in the event of economic and political instability around the world. This is because the CHF is considered a safe haven currency which traders turn to in times of uncertainty in global financial markets.In terms of volatility, price movements and technical characteristics, the Swiss franc is very similar to the Pound Sterling for trading.
