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

The USD > 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 gain or losses, and this new freedom temporarily caused more headaches in the market than anticipated. Since then, it’s settled back into a stable trend.

What affects USD > 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. The Pound has been getting significantly weaker since the Brexit referendum result and this trend will likely continue.

Swiss monetary policy

The Swiss franc has reputation as a safe-haven currency. Should the Swiss government decide to peg the franc to another major currency (such as the euro or 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.
