Interesting facts

How to trade

In the AUD/CHF pair, the leading currency is the Swiss franc. It is the change in its strength that determines the volatility and earning potential. In the trading practice, four main criteria that must be taken into account when trading AUD/CHF have been formed.

Retail sales data, usually published on the first couple of days of the month, is an indicator of the internal health of the economy. Since Switzerland regularly attracts a large amount of foreign investment, these data have less impact on the currency than in other countries.

Inflation rate. Switzerland is serious about the stability of its currency, which means that the National Bank can enthusiastically intervene if the data starts to go beyond the target range.

Higher inflation rates can provoke intervention, which will lead to an intuitive growth of the currency, while unexpectedly low inflation can make the currency relatively weak since this excludes the intervention of the Central Bank in the process of currency regulation.

Trade balance and GDP. The export of high-tech equipment is also a significant factor in the Swiss economy (including medicines). An increase in exports shows an increase in demand for foreign currency, as Swiss companies repatriate profits by supporting the currency and vice versa.

On the other hand, the National Bank openly supports exporters, and if the currency is too strong in its value (which is a constant in their relation to the market), they can intervene to weaken the franc.

Leading indicator KOD. This is the Swiss business confidence index, which has a strong influence on stocks and can affect the currency. An increase in business confidence usually leads to a strengthening franc, and a decrease in confidence can mean a weakening of the currency.

Use these facts to build a competent trading strategy and always conduct a comprehensive market analysis before opening orders. Despite the outward greatness of the Swiss franc, the currency is much more volatile than the Australian dollar.
