The Swiss franc is regarded as a "shelter-currency", since it’s characterized by low volatility and is quite stable against sharp variations, unlike other financial instruments. The result is that USDCHF is perfectly suitable for position trading, owing to this stability. But, this currency pair doesn’t account for large exchange volumes in the Forex market structure (less than 6%, as a rule).
The monetary policy conducted by the Swiss National Bank has a great influence on the dynamics of the national currency. Owing to the general fact, that the notion "Swiss bank" has become a common noun denoting stability and reliability, and considering that the role of the American dollar is on decrease, the Swiss franc can act as an attractive long-term investment instrument. At the same time, short-term operations with USDCHF can be used for diversifying current risks arising from particularly high market volatility.
