SNB Won't Let EUR/CHF Fall
Information is not investment advice
It looks like the decline in EUR/CHF to 1.07 has got the attention of the Swiss National Bank (SNB). An increase in sight deposits by over 1 billion CHF in the past two weeks suggests that intervention has resumed. SNB’s goal is to avoid CHF strengthening. That is why if EUR/CHF drops down to 1.05, SNB will intervene.
At the moment, EUR/CHF correlates with EUR/USD. If EUR gets weaker as Federal Reserve tightens monetary policy, it will create issues for SNB.
According to experts’ opinion, EUR/CHF is going to consolidate between 1.05 and 1.1 in the middle-term perspective.
EUR/CHF dropped to its 1,072-support driven by the strong impulse. At the moment, a pullback to the 1,075 level is expected. If the price breaks through, the next target will be 1.079. On the other hand, if the pair breaks through 1,072, the next support levels will be 1,068 and 1,063.
This week, there are a few high-probability trade ideas I'd like to recommend to you. Trading these setups, be sure to implement a proper risk management approach.
On Thursday, the 2nd of February, the Bank of England will publish its report concerning interest rates and inflation data for the Eurozone. Professionals and investors anticipate that Andrew Bailey’s lead team of policy makers will likely raise interest rates to 4%; the highest in over a decade, for the tenth time in a row.
The first FOMC meeting comes after a buildup of anticipation from traders and investors alike, as the markets await what posture the Fed will take regarding the interest rates; would there be a hike or a cut in interest rates? Recall that the Federal Open Market Committee had previously ended the year 2022 with a 50bps hike, and an indication from Powell, the committee chairman, that the Fed could consider raising interest rates by 75bps in the course of the year 2023.
