EUR/CHF Slippage Puts Cross Within Range of Bear Trigger

  • Sizeable slide in EUR/CHF and USD/CHF through the WMR fix today - no headlines or data to trigger the move in CHF specifically, leaving the move likely a result of month-end flow - nonetheless the EUR/CHF slippage puts the cross further through support of the 50- and 100-dmas of 0.9599 and 0.9592 and is narrowing the gap with key support and the bear trigger of 0.9417.
  • Worth noting CHF implied vols are bid, with spot volatility likely feeding into the gauges. The 2w implied EUR/CHF contract is particularly firm, with the contract capturing both the ECB and SNB decisions on December 14th.
