By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The EUR/CHF fell to retest last month’s lows as the franc strengthened following the Swiss National Bank (SNB) decision to leave its rate at 0-0.25% and the EUR/CHF peg unchanged at 1.2000.



The EUR/CHF fell to 1-month lows at the 1.2160 area despite the SNB reiterated it would defend the floor set at 1.2000 in September 2011 with utmost determination. At time of writing, the euro-franc is trading at 1.2165, recording a 0.09% loss on the day.



The direct intervention on EUR/CHF helped the Swiss economy to avoid stronger deflation through the Eurozone crisis, but the pair found a top at 1.2646 in May 2013 and has been steadily declining ever since.
