Outlook and forecasts for GBP and CHF

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as exchange rates are the ratio between two currencies.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the GBP vs CHF, you should pay attention to the forecasts and trends for both British Pound Sterling and Swiss Franc:

 

British Pound Sterling (GBP) outlook

The pound ended a record-setting 14-day losing streak against the euro on May-24, but it was still near multi-month lows at €1.135. The end of GBP selling was attributed by some to the announcement of Theresa May’s resignation (effective June-7); however, this is more likely a coincidence, with profit-taking almost certainly the real cause of GBP relief.

A similar period of harm for GBP/USD took the pair to $1.27 — near a 4-month low.

Sterling weakness has returned following a breakdown in cross-party Brexit talks and a backlash against Theresa May’s “last chance” offer to British MPs — a fourth vote in June on her withdrawal deal which, if passed, will be followed by a legally-binding vote on a second referendum, plus some further, minor enhancements to the deal.

A fourth defeat for May’s plan is widely expected and would make no-deal much more realistic, especially since she is likely to be replaced by a Brexit-supporting Conservative (Leave-voting Boris Johnson is the firm favourite). The new leader could endorse no-deal and that would be disastrous for the pound.

Read the full article British Pound Sterling Forecasts.

 

Swiss Franc (CHF) outlook

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, in an effort to spark inflation in the economy.

The SNB would have been happy, therefore, with the franc’s April slump. In the first 17 trading days of April (to April-23), the franc gained in only 5 against the euro, putting it on course for its worst monthly performance in 2 years. The franc traded at a 6-month low against the euro (Fr1.147) and at a 2-year low against the dollar (Fr1.023).

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

The GBP/CHF mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news, nobody except the largest banks and businesses can get exchange rates close to this mid-rate. It is actually just the theoretical half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the GBP / CHF was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

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.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
