    In an interview with Swiss magazine Bilanz on Thursday, Swiss National Bank (SNB) Chairman Thomas Jordan reiterated that Swiss franc still remains ‘overvalued’, while adding that he doesn’t rule out slashing interest rates further.

    Key Quotes:

    We have gone relatively far with the negative interest rates. At present we are monitoring the situation closely. We do not rule out anything

    For this purpose (to weaken the franc), we have negative interest rates and we are ready to intervene in the forex market

    The franc remained overvalued but would likely weaken over time. The overvaluation is less important than it was a year ago

    Turbulence in Europe could put Franc back in focus as a safe-haven currency

    Inflation is negative at the moment and lower than we would like it to be

    Our monetary policy that is very expansive is aiming to push it back into positive territory in the medium term
