Switzerland could be named a currency manipulator this month – Citi

Citi flags asymmetric risk/reward in CHF this month

Citi flags a scope for Switzerland to be named a currency manipulator by the US  by US Treasury in October. 

CitiFX Strategy’s latest: Switzerland can be named a currency manipulator in October.
Switzerland has met the objective criteria to be labeled a currency
manipulator by US Treasury. The timing of the US Treasury Foreign
Exchange Report has been disrupted over the past 18 months; however, we
expect US Treasury will attempt to get back on schedule by releasing the
report this month.

This provides asymmetric risk/reward for long CHF positions
in the coming weeks as countries named currency manipulators tend to see
their currencies strengthen
