    FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/CHF rallied from daily lows and climbed more than 70 pips in a matter of minutes as investors reacted to pre-ECB decision rumors that turned out to be unfounded.

    European Central Bank
    decided to cut the deposit rate by 10 bps to -0.30% a widely anticipated move, leaving other rates unchanged. Now attention turns to President Draghi who is expected to announce more measures at a press conference at 13:30 GMT.

    The decision to cut the deposit rate did not reverse euro gains. EUR/CHF peaked at 1.0871 and it was last at 1.0850, still 0.40% above its opening price.

    Meanwhile, the Swiss National Bank (SNB) spokesman declined to comment on ECB rate decision and on any possible SNB market intervention.
