Swiss Franc Fluctuates as SNB Refuses Irish Bonds as Collateral

The Swiss franc fluctuated against the euro after Switzerland’s central bank said it won’t take some of Ireland’s government bonds as collateral.

The franc was near its weakest level in a week against the common currency. The Swiss National Bank won’t take Irish debt due to be repaid between 2011 and 2025, according to its website.
