Futures flat as Trump tax plan awaited
U.S. stock index futures were little changed on Wednesday amid a flood of corporate earnings, while investors awaited President Donald Trump's tax plan.
ZURICH Switzerland's largest banks said on Monday they will penalize banks holding Swiss franc deposits by imposing temporary fees and negative interest rates in a bid to stem inflows of the red-hot Swiss currency.
"We invite out customers to keep cash balances as low as possible to avoid negative credit charges," Credit Suisse CSGN.VX said in a statement to clients seen by Reuters.
"In cases where we see net inflows in cash clearing accounts above a certain threshold, we continue to take corrective action, by means of a temporary excess balance fee," UBS UBSN.VX said in a statement.
