Swiss Franc (CHF) general currency information


What is the Swiss Franc currency code and symbol?

The three letter currency code for the Swiss Franc is CHF and the symbol is Fr.


Which countries use the Swiss Franc?

It is the domestic currency in Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

Contributing to roughly 5% of the foreign exchange market daily turnover, the Swiss franc (ISO: CHF) is the world’s seventh most traded currency.

The Swiss franc is traditionally considered Europe’s safe haven currency due to factors including Switzerland’s traditional position as a politically neutral country, its reputation for stability, impressive financial system, historically low inflation and its ability to consistently run a trade surplus. For this reason, the franc is likely to increase in value during periods of economic uncertainty or when global geopolitical risk is elevated, or during bouts of high market volatility.

To prevent unwanted currency appreciation, between September 2011 and January 2015 the franc’s value was pegged to the euro at a rate of Fr. 1.2. When Switzerland’s central bank unexpectedly abandoned the peg in 2015 it caused significant market turmoil.

Since 1995, against the world’s reserve currency, the US dollar, the Swiss franc’s lowest valuation came in October 2000 when CHF/USD traded at just 0.5465. Its post-1995 high came in August 2011 at 1.4152.


Swiss Franc (CHF) in the markets

12-December-18: The Swiss franc strengthened in the first half of December, shrugging off poor third-quarter GDP data.

The Swiss National Bank said in November that “monetary policy with negative interest rates and the willingness to intervene [in FX markets] remains necessary.” The SNB’s continued dovishness accounts for the franc’s 7 percent year-to-date decline relative to the dollar, against which it was valued at the time of writing at Fr0.993.

Since bouncing off the symbolic level of 1.2 in April, the franc has strengthened by 6.4 percent against the euro — a euro that is under intense pressure from Brexit-related uncertainties. The euro bought only 1.128 francs at the time of writing, which will undoubtedly concern the SNB.

Scotiabank sees the franc much stronger against the dollar by the end of 2019, at Fr0.88, and marginally weaker against the euro, at Fr1.15.

The interactive chart below shows the USD to CHF exchange rate for the previous 3 months with rate alerts for days when the exchange rate moved up or down significantly or for 30 day highs and lows.
