Forex news, rate of Swiss franc. Swiss National Bank has defined the fixed rate that may be set for national currency – 1.20 francs per euro. As reported by Bloomberg, the institution recognizes certain signs of stabilization, but there is high threat of deflation.
Analysts expected that the significant level against euro was to be kept. Gross national product unexpectedly rose during the last quarter of 2011, and investors’ trust rose in March. These days the government has raised its expectations about this year’s economic growth. New hopes foresee the 0.8 percent economic growth instead of formerly predicted 0.5 percent.
Central bank has lowered its predictions about inflation in 2014. This year deflation is expected to reach 0.6 percent, and during next two years living standards are expected to rise by 0.3 and 0.6 percent accordingly.
"In short-term perspective inflation will be negative. Last summer the rate of Swiss franc was stronger than expected in relation to pressure on prices. In long-term perspective inflation will be low due to worse perspectives of growth in euro zone and high cost of franc", the Central Bank stated.

All those black Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays keep on haunting FX traders these days. It’s been around 6 months since the SNB unpegged the Swiss Franc, thereby triggering force-majeure in the Forex industry. Greece has been causing stress to FX traders as well.
On August 24th, we could see another case of abnormal market volatility. Major stock indexes crashed, currencies went wild. Was this another stress test for FX traders and even brokers? This is the question we asked the Forex-Market company.
These days, more and more traders prefer automated trading to manual one. In other words, they outsource the trading process to trading robots. They say that the biggest advantage of using trading robots (also known as expert advisors) is the absence of emotions all human traders are subject to. Indeed, emotions in trading lead to poor results more often than not.
As you probably know, Forex is the worlds’ biggest financial market. Therefore, the money is more then enough for the average trader to get rich. On top of that, immense financial flows (several trillion dollars a day) stimulate innovation in trading, which leads us to believe that contemporary FX brokers create a more favorable environment for retail traders to make money consistently.
Without any doubt, these are hard times for the entire global trading and investment community. As the financial and economic uncertainty keeps building up, financial markets go volatile and and uncertain as well. Under such circumstances, Forex traders are forced to seek truly reliable FX brokers, especially after several big-scale FX brokers went bankrupt following the SNB’s decision to unpeg the Swiss Franc from the Euro earlier this year.
