CHF and ETH in the Markets

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the CHF vs ETH, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

 

Swiss Franc (CHF)

The Swiss National Bank continues to reaffirm its commitment to an ultra-loose monetary policy, which includes negative interest rates and a willingness to intervene in FX markets, as part of an effort to spark inflation in the economy.

The SNB will be unhappy, therefore, with the franc’s strength in May.

Between April-23 and May-24 (the day of this report), the franc was the best performing G10 currency; it gained 2.2 percent against the euro, taking EUR/CHF back towards Fr1.12 and close to long-term lows (franc highs).

May’s strength reflected worsening sentiment towards the global economy, driven by a significant escalation in US-China trade tensions. As a safe haven, the franc typically gains value during tough times and sinks when investors gain confidence.

 

Etherium (ETH)

2018 was the year that the cryptocurrency dream came crashing down. The bubble that many had suspected was building in 2017 was realised and ethereum went on to lose roughly 80 percent of its value. Ethereum ended the year at $136, having battled with major obstacles including regulatory crackdowns and social media advertising bans.

In the first 2 ½ months of 2019, ethereum at least held its value, trading between $100 and $170.

In 2019, on balance, press was still mostly negative on cryptocurrencies. This press included the bankruptcy in February of Canada’s largest crypto exchange, QuadrigaCX, and March’s decision by the CBOE (a major US derivatives exchange) to ditch bitcoin futures contracts amid declining interest.

Because the release of the CBOE’s futures contracts coincided with the crypto market top in December ’17–January ’18, superstitious folk said in March they were anticipating the emergence of a new bull market.

An Investment Week expert said in February that ethereum predictions were now “pointless.”

Why can't I just get the CHF/ETH market rate I see online or in the media?

The mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news. It is actually just the half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the CHF / ETH was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate). Some providers such as Transferwise will quote you the mid-rate (or close to) and charge a separate percentage fee.

Getting a good market rate is mainly about timing however the transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.
