Canadian Dollar

Owing to the image of a loon on the one-dollar coin, the Canadian dollar (CAD) is sometimes referred to as the “loonie”. Closely tied to the US economy, the Canadian dollar accounts for approximately 2% of all global reserves, superseded only by the U.S dollar (USD), the euro (EUR), the yen (JPY), and the Great Britain Pound (GBP). With its extreme sensitivity to movements in crude oil and other products, traders often use the CAD to speculate on trends related to these commodities.

Swiss Franc

The Swiss franc is, for the most part, considered to be “hard currency” or currency that is unlikely to depreciate in value over time. Around the world, the Swiss franc serves as the 8th most common reserve currency, representing 0.2% of global reserves. This recognizable currency goes by many other names in Switzerland, including Thune, Amiese, Frankler, Stutz, and Liber.

How does the Canadian Dollar trade against the Swiss franc historically?

The CAD/CHF exchange rate has a historical pattern of stability, which should ease concerns over exchange rate fluctuations as you compare rates and look to send money overseas to Switzerland. The Swiss franc is called a “safe haven currency” due to Switzerland’s monetary policy and cautious reputation. The most recent blip occurred in 2015, when the Swiss government unpegged the franc from the euro, causing a “Francogedden.” Basically, this meant that the Swiss franc was no longer limited to small cap gains or losses, and this new freedom temporarily caused more headaches in the market than anticipated. Since then, it has settled back into a stable trend.

What affects CAD/CHF exchange rates?

Brexit

Overall market fears concerning the impact of the UK leaving the European Union in 2019 will likely cause fluctuations across the board. However, the Swiss franc’s reputation as a safe-haven currency could help it weather the storm.

Swiss monetary policy

Should the Swiss government decide to peg the franc to another major currency (such as the euro or the U.S. dollar), it will likely cause initial spikes or drops in the exchange rate. However, Switzerland’s own interest in self-preservation should steer any monetary policy toward cautious decisions.
