Swiss National Bank makes for the exit

Switzerland’s central bank said it will stop purchases of corporate bonds as it joins other countries in starting to withdraw emergency measures.

The Swiss National Bank, which announced plans to buy bonds in March, also held the three-month Libor target at 0.25 percent, as expected. The bank said it will continue to “act decisively to prevent any excessive appreciation” in the Swiss franc.
