But Barclays Capital analysts warned expectations of a peg seemed overdone, believing the franc would rally once again this week if markets started to change their view on its probability.

"We remain CHF bears in the medium run - we agree with the SNB's view that it is "massively overvalued" - but, this week, we are not expecting the recent appreciation of EUR/CHF to hold," said Paul Robinson, strategist at Barclays Capital.
Perhaps there is light on the horizon for us selfish expat

I await being made to eat my words when the GBP costs 1.35 CHF at the end of next week....
It is beginning to look like you may be right. Passed 1.30 and heading the right way (for me anyway)

Indeed.

Good job I didn't have any free cash to transfer to back up the courage of my convictions...

Re: Sterling to CHF Exchange Rate

The way the rates are fluctuating at the moment means it is a good idea to shop aroung if changing currency.

I saw rates of CHF1.21/£ and CHF1.278/£ in the same street today.

Re: Sterling to CHF Exchange Rate

It seems that, after the major dip, the rate is settling around CHF1.3/£
I wonder if this will last long.

1.20 was clearly oversold, does not mean that it won't go lower, it will probably get stronger now the floor has been established.

Oof.

If anyone wants to spread any terrifying rumours about the state of EU finances to the movers and shakers of international finance, please do so now. I have a shopping trip to London planned.

How long before we see petrol and food prices rise to cope with the weak CHF?

I think that within 2 years; the exchange rate will be CH1.8 to £1GB
I see GB£ possibly becoming a strong currency when the Euro gets hit by countries leaving the Euro which is inevitable when Greece does not get bailed out which it will not. It all depends on the exposure the UK has to these EC countries.

Re: Sterling to CHF Exchange Rate

Since the CHF was given a floor against the EUR, the GBP exchange rate is now 1.40.

I got a phone call from a friend, went out, and forgot to transfer the money. Just done it now at 1.28 (0.78).
Well, that was then and this is now. Currently looking at sending some more money to the UK and the rate is 1.37 (0.73) on xe.com. I wonder how it'll play out as the Brexit coverage continues.
