Swiss stocks were little changed after the Swiss Market Index reached the highest level in more than two months yesterday, while investors awaited tomorrow’s central-bank policy meetings.
The SMI (SMI) slipped 0.1 percent to 6,190.97 at 3:53 p.m. in Zurich. The gauge has rallied 4.4 percent this year as the European Central Bank disbursed 1 trillion euros ($1.26 trillion) to financial companies and the region’s leaders opened the door to directly recapitalizing lenders using the European Stability Mechanism. The Swiss Performance Index added less than 0.1 percent today.
