Additional Info

EUR

The European Union is the second largest of the world’s financial regions, and has a GDP of some $13 trillion, just a trillion – or around 7% less than the US. It works in exactly the same way as the US economy, and it’s not rocket science. When the European economy is strong, so is the euro, and when it is weaker so is the euro. In spite of the problems that the EU has had in recent years, including the situation in Greece, the euro is of special interest to traders because of its’ potential volatility.

CHF

The code for the Swiss franc is CHF, which stands for Confederazione Helvetica Franc, and is the official currency of Switzerland and Liechtenstein. It is the only franc now in use in Europe.

The CHF has for years been regarded as a safe haven currency. This is because Switzerland largely keeps itself to itself and remains politically neutral. It is thus a stable currency without dramatic fluctuations. In addition, Switzerland has also kept a considerable degree of bank secrecy, and has managed to maintain the value of the franc. Furthermore, unemployment is the country is at a very low rate – less than half the average in the European Union.
