    Forecasts for USD to CHF

    USDCHF chart
    90-DAY LOW

    The USD/CHF exchange rate has been a buzz of interest among FX analysts, with the Reuters Poll of Forex Strategists suggesting a resilient US dollar, buoyed by a robust economy and attractive Treasury yields. Although the greenback has experienced moments of weakness, its strength is primarily underpinned by concerns over global economic slowdown and situation in China dampening the risk appetite. Even as this vigor is forecasted to continue, economists anticipate a modest pullback against major currencies into the next year. This moderation is expected as the Federal Reserve nears what could be its first cycle of interest rate cuts. Therefore, while the current robustness of the dollar might not wane imminently, the projection is for gradual softening as 2024 approaches, contingent on a shift in the Fed's monetary policy.

    How to get a good USD to CHF exchange rate

    There are several ways to save on exchange rates when converting US dollar to Swiss franc:

    1. Shop around for the best USD/CHF exchange rate: Exchange rates can vary significantly between different currency exchange providers, so it's important to compare rates from different sources before making a conversion.
    2. Timing is important: Keep an eye on the USD/CHF rate on currency markets, as exchange rates can fluctuate frequently. Try to make your transactions when the exchange rate is in your favor. You can do this easily with our BER Smart Rate Tracker.
    3. Use a credit/debit or travel card that doesn't charge foreign transaction fees: Some credit cards charge additional fees for transactions made in a foreign currency, so it's important to check with your card issuer to see if they charge these fees and what their exchange rate is.
    4. Use a multi-currency account: Having a multi-currency account allows you to hold and transfer money in both USD and CHF at close to the interbank rate. It also allows you to make payments or withdrawals in the local currency while avoiding high conversion fees.
    5. Buy currency in advance: If you know that you will need foreign currency in the future, consider buying it in advance when the exchange rate is favorable.

    The key is reducing excessive costs and fees

    Generally speaking, if you are buying Swiss franc with US dollar, then it's better for the USD/CHF exchange rate to be higher.

    However working against you are the fees all foreign exchange providers charge for providing their service. These fees is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

    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.

    It's worth noting that while these tips can help you save on exchange rates, it's important to be aware that no single method is guaranteed to provide the best exchange rate in every situation, and it may require some research and comparison-shopping to find the best option for your specific needs.

    Will the US dollar rise against the Swiss franc?

    It is almost impossible to predict what an exchange rate will do in the future, the best approach is to monitor the currency markets and transact when an exchange rate moves in your favour.

    To help with this you can add USD/CHF to your personalised BER Smart Rate Tracker to track and benefit from currency movements.
