SNB Deputy Chairman Fritz Zurbruegg said the central bank will stick to the boring expansionary monetary policy today.
He said, “we are boring and are sticking to our expansionary monetary stance.” He reiterated “we speak of negative interest rates and a readiness to intervene in the foreign exchange markets.” And he emphasized “we have flexibility and room to manoeuvre on both core instruments. We are absolutely convinced we can use these tools and will continue to do so.”
Also Zurbruegg he noticed that international developments are having strongest influences on the Franc exchange rate. However, “it is not a given that we have to react to each and every development.”
