Swiss Franc Futures Trading Defined and Explained
Swiss Franc futures traders can manage the risks associated with currency rate fluctuation and take advantage of profit opportunities stemming from changes in Swiss Franc rates.
Swiss franc futures began trading in 1972, and when the new European currency the “euro” was introduced, the Swiss franc appreciated significantly against the Euro and remains one of the world’s strongest currencies, worth today around two-thirds of a euro. The Swiss franc offers both a low volatility and a low correlation with the return on foreign assets. One Swiss franc is typically divided into 100.

The key to a Swiss Franc trading system is its ability to forecast moving averages!
