Well I guess there is at least one person who seems not to agree with the OP:

Most of those commenting on the article seem to think the author is an idiot (and worse). One comment:

"A stunninshingly stupid piece of drivel."

I also suspected that, but well.. its nice to see that people still troll even on such topics (or at least thats how I see the article.. a very very educated and well formulated attempt at trolling).

That is one of the biggest load of drivel I've read in a long time.
Agree. ZH is great to read lots of different viewpoints (and drivel), but you have to do it with a skeptical mindset!

The Euro & by extension the Swiss Franc are cheap right now relative to historical prices against many other currencies. USD for example.
is that you, Jordan?

Re: It may be a good time to buy into Swiss Francs if you're savings are in other cur

Take a look at the history of this thread!

It was started on 8th January - CHF/USD rate 1.02.

On 15th January, exactly one week later, the rate plunged to 0.86.

Why on earth would anyone ask forex future advice on EF in the first place, and even more so on this thread

Well, USD, yes, compared to last five years. But against Euro and GBP it's not really significantly different across that period, apart from the brief dip in 2011 before the SNB announced their rate peg.

Me, I'm still waiting until it gets back to >2chf/gbp or 1.5 Eu/gbp before I bring the rest of my capital over here. I may be waiting for some time...
Well we have been as High as 1.44 euro/ gbp in the last month so you may not have to wait much longer .

I suspect the salary in CH was not more but probably less than in the UK at that time. That was certainly the case when the CHF recovered to 2.60 last time.
What has happened is that UK salaries hugely increased & Swiss salaries hardly changed
