Swiss Franc, Pseudo-Mathematics And Financial Charlatanism: Extended Version

We have published the extended version of “The Swiss Franc, Pseudo-Mathematics And Financial Charlatanism” on the investor site Seeking Alpha. The version is longer than the one published previously.

In the future we would like to examine why the research done by the Swiss National Bank only focuses on certain aspects of the balance of payments.
E.g. here an SNB paper on the CHF safe-haven status

As we said in our contribution above, the safe-haven status was reflected by a 2013 net outflow of 4 bln. CHF from safe Swiss bonds. This is nothing compared to a current account surplus of 80 bln. By the way, the SNB research confirmed that CHF is not among the best safe-havens for the case of a global crisis.

But we think that instead of safe bonds, investors rather use Swiss equities as a safe proxy for global economic growth.
