Sterling Finds Support Against the CHF – Will This Trend Continue? (Matthew Vassallo)

The Pound is likely to remain under pressure against the CHF this week, despite a small upturn over recent days.

GBP/CHF hit a high of 1.2850 last month but following reports of another breakdown in Brexit talks and shrinking growth forecasts, investor confidence remains minimal.

The recent losses were curbed following some strong UK Manufacturing & Production figures last week, which came in above market expectation.

However, based on the overall negative market perception surrounding the UK economy at present, I do not anticipate this trend to continue over the coming days.

In my opinion those clients holding Sterling should be viewing this as window of opportunity, many analysts would not have predicted.

Whilst the current market remains extremely difficult to dissect, it essentially comes down to client’s risk adversity.

Those clients looking to sell Pounds need to ask themselves are they prepared to bet against the current market trend and a safe currency like the CHF?

Whilst the Swiss National Bank (SNB) continue their stance of trying to control the CHF’s value, it is unlikely to cause a devaluation against GBP for the time being.
