Swiss Franc Little Changed After Disappointing CPI Data

Swiss Franc Little Changed After Disappointing CPI Data

Cecilia Sanchez-Corona,

Talking Points:

  • Swiss CPI declined on a month-on-month and year-on-year basis
  • SNB likely to maintain existing policy mix unchanged in the near future
  • Swiss Franc slightly lower vs. US Dollarbut resistance levels holding

Switzerland’s Consumer Price Index was lower than median forecasts in October, falling 0.1 percent from the previous month and disappointing calls for a 0.1 percent increase. The year-on-year inflation rate also declined, falling 0.3 percent to produce a larger drawdown than the0.1 percent drop the market had anticipated.

Despite last’s month slight improvement in the monthly CPI number (+0.3% m/m), the year-on-year trend underscores it will be some time yet before the Swiss economy emerges from its deflationary cycle and moves toward the SNB’s target 2 percent price growth rate. As such, the central bank is unlikely to tamper with interest rates or abandon the EURCHF floor at 1.20 in the near term.

In this context, the response from USDCHF was reasonably minor, with prices briefly rising but failing unable to breach the first layer ofdaily pivot point resistance at 0.9137. A break above this threshold sees subsequent upside barriers at 0.9175 and 0.9236.
