Breaking Down ‘EUR/CHF’
The euro (€; EUR) is the official currency of 19 of the 28 member states of the European Union. The euro is the second largest and second most traded currency in the foreign exchange market after the United States dollar. The euro is divided into 100 cents.
Whereas, the Swiss franc, is a reserve currency. Therefore its value surges during times of uncertainty as investors seek safe-haven options. The exchange rate of Swiss Franc is also determined by economic factors such as interest rates, trade balance, and inflation, but the prices of gold, oil, and coal also tend to be important factors. This pair is known as a pair trend because there are usually great upward or downward trends. It is also often adapted to Swing Trading but because of its lack of buoyancy, it is less popular with scalpers. The EUR/CHF and the USD/SHF exchange rates are highly positively correlated.
