The Swiss National Bank (SNB) left unchanged its monetary policy:  the 3-month Libor remains between -1.25% and -0.25% while the deposit rate is at -0,75%. "The negative interest rate and the SNB's willingness to intervene in the foreign exchange market are intended to make Swiss franc investments less attractive, thereby easing upward pressure on the currency", the SNB wrote in the note. For 2016 as a whole, the SNB now expects growth of approximately 1.5%. The institute also reaffirms its intention to remain active on the currency market if necessary. The decision does not represent a surprise: they were expected by all experts polled by Reuters last week.

Germany: investors prefer real estate than stock market

Technical analysis : US/JPY probes down-trend

Despite a lack of events in the economic calendar the US Dollar managed to strengthen, and now there is a good chance of the pair settling above 102.70, where the weekly PP coincides with the 55-day SMA. If this is the case, the next resistance to try and stop the advancement will be 103.50, represented by the trendline that originated at the very beginning of the year. Additional resistance is at 104.80 (100-day SMA and monthly R1), but a breach of 103.50 is likely to be followed by a recovery to July highs at 107 yen.
