Swiss Flight To Safety Largest In 7 Months

Tyler Durden's picture


While the equity markets inch back to their 'safe' place of de minimus volumes and slow leakage higher, it seems real money is flooding into the safety of Switzerland (and gold). Swiss 2Y rates are testing back into negative territory once again and have dropped (on demand) their most since August 2012.



and gold is also bid (despite USD strength) as safe-havens remain where real (non-Johnny 5) money is flowing...

TD's rule: Always do opposite of Goldman's advice.

So yes, Goldman is selling the rally while selling the rally......

Well thats fantastic, a really smart decision. We can put that in a money market mutual fund and reinvest the earnings into foreign currency accounts with compounding interest, and its gone. Next please...

This could be one of those weird times when gold and the dollar go up simultaneously.

Those buying, are working on the assumption that losing 0.1% is better, than taking sharp haircuts of 9.9%.

Welcome to Risk Off.

Judging by the market's reaction, the politicians now have the green light to confiscate even more. Perhaps this was trial run to see how confiscation would play! Next up company profits!

SNB is doing everything to keep the CHF low via rhetoric today. They don't care about gov. bond yields, though.

The return on Swiss 2ys is the 1.8% gap between EUR/CHF 1.225 and 1.201 which is the target for the next month or so. It's not about yield, it's about currency gains.


I'm making a prediction here: The Draghi put, ie the promise to do OMT (with unknown conditions) is going to be tested this year.

Meanwhile junk assets like Euro Stoxx 50 (just look up the components) are levitating back towards unchanged.

For the non-financials amongst us, is the right hand axis of the Swiss 2Y chart in % or in basis points (0.01%)? My interpretation is that if you buy a Swiss 2Y bond you get back 0.0502% less than you invested. Is that correct?
