    Swiss franc in biggest daily jump since 2015 after rate hike

    LONDON (Reuters) -Switzerland's franc soared on Thursday after the Swiss National Bank took markets by surprise with a large interest rate hike, putting the currency on track for its biggest one-day rise against the euro in more than seven years. The central bank had broadly been expected to stand pat on a -0.75% interest rate that was the lowest in any major developed country, though some banks had suggested a quarter-point was possible. Instead, the SNB increased its policy rate to -0.25% from the -0.75% level it has deployed since 2015.

    Swiss franc soars after shock rate hike; pound rises

    The Swiss franc soared against the dollar and the euro on Thursday after the Swiss National Bank delivered a surprise interest rate hike, while the British pound rose after the Bank of England delivered a rate hike of its own. The SNB joined other central banks in tightening monetary policy in its first rate hike in 15 years, increasing its policy rate to -0.25% from the -0.75% it has deployed since 2015. The move put the Swiss franc on pace for its largest daily jump against the euro since the SNB ditched its currency peg in 2015, with the common currency tumbling 1.9% to 1.019 francs, a 2-month low.

    Dollar drops as yen, Swiss franc draw safe-haven flows

    NEW YORK (Reuters) -The dollar slipped across the board on Thursday, falling to a 2-week low, extending its pullback from a two-decade high, as most major currencies battered by the greenback's advance this year drew buyers. With volatility on the rise in global financial markets, the dollar logged sharp declines against the Japanese yen and the Swiss franc, which tend to attract investors in times of market stress or risk. But the dollar also fared poorly against riskier currencies, including the Australian and the New Zealand dollar, as deep year-to-dates losses for these currencies attracted some buyers.
