The AUD/CHF Spot tells investors how much Australian dollars are worth in Swiss francs, with a higher figure indicating greater strength for the Aussie - as the southern hemisphere country's currency is often referred to.
For many investors, the Australian dollar is an attractive prospect, as the nation's government has a relatively hands-off approach to the forex industry.
Unlike many other destinations, the political and economic landscape is also fairly stable, giving traders a degree of certainty in one respect.
The main pressures on its value are national interest rates, economic performance and trade levels, although most analysts will argue that the commodities market is one of the most important factors.
Australia has traditionally been a country that exports a great deal, so the value of commodities like minerals and certain agricultural items will often weight heavily on the dollar.
The Swiss franc, represented by CHF as a nod to Confoederatio Helvetica, is a reserve currency, so its value can rise when investors are looking for safe-haven options.
Its price is also mainly influenced by economic factors such as interest rates, trade balance and inflation, but the price of gold, oil and coal also tends to be important.
Both the Australian dollar and the Swiss franc are considered 'majors' of the forex world, as they are the fifth and sixth most-traded currencies.
