Trading of complex financial products, such as Stocks, Futures, Foreign Exchange (‘Forex’), Contracts for Difference (‘CFDs’), Indices, Options, or other financial derivatives, on ‘margin’ carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade any of these markets you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and, therefore, you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading these markets, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any questions or doubts.

US Dollar vs Swiss Franc (USDCHF)



The USDCHF is the abbreviation for the U.S. dollar and Swiss franc. The currency pair, also known as the "Swissie" shows the number of Swiss francs (quote currency) needed to purchase one U.S. dollar (base currency). The Swiss franc is often viewed as a safe haven currency due to its tendency towards stability. This largely prevents it from drastic fluctuations in the currency rate. It is for this reason that the USDCHF makes for an ideal option when traders are looking for a more stable investment especially during times of high volatility elsewhere in the globe. The currency pair tends to have a negative correlation with the EUR/USD and GBP/USD because of the positive correlation of the euro, Swiss franc, and the British pound.
