Swiss Franc Climbs Despite Intervention Warning


The Swiss franc gained versus several

key-currencies today despite the nation’s central bank concerns regarding the strength of its currency, which already was expressed previously in statements mentioning eventual future interventions to halt the franc’s rally.

Even if the Swiss National Bank President Philipp Hildebrand stated last week that franc’s fluctuations will be monitored closely, expressing concern with the Swiss currency high rates, the franc advanced today versus the euro as traders feel it is still undervalued versus the European single currency. According to analysts, the SNB will impose more than verbal interventions anytime soon as long as the franc continues bullish.

EUR/CHF traded at 1.4740 as of 21:31 GMT from an opening rate of 1.4753 yesterday.
