Swiss Franc

Swiss Franc Hedger

A hedger in the Swiss franc market is an individual who uses the futures market to offset price risk when intending to sell or buy the actual Swiss franc. Hedging is possible because the Swiss franc cash prices and Swiss franc futures prices tend to move in the same direction. However, the difference between the cash price and the futures price may narrow or widen. The change in the difference between the cash price and the futures price is called basis risk. Because of the changing basis no hedge can be perfect.


Where can you hedge the Swiss franc? The Swiss franc can be hedged on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME). The CME offers a competitive and transparent market place to engage in efficient hedging strategies. If you are interested in hedging Swiss franc please contact us.
