Time to Bet on the SNB?

Time to Bet on the SNB?

Talking Points

  • EUR/CHF traded at lowest level in over 2-years this week
  • Cyclical outlook turning more positive on the cross in the days ahead

We don't like betting on central bank interventions. As traders who have been long the EUR/CHF over the past few months can probably attest - central banks are not always on the same time table as speculators. The ‘mental capital’ wasted on waiting for central banks to do what they promised is usually not worth it. That said, there are times when cyclical relationships begin to align with the agenda of the monetary authorities. We think we are about to undergo one of those periods in EUR/CHF as several medium-term cyclical relationships are converging over the next few days. In our view, this increases the potential for a change in trend or at least some decent sort of counter trend attempt. Interestingly this timing relationship convergence is coinciding with a more positive news cycle as recent opinion polls regarding the Swiss gold referendum have swung dramatically in favor of the “No” camp which should help relieve some of the pressure on the cross.
