SNB's Hildebrand resigns

Swiss National Bank's Philipp Hildebrand has resigned, after initially retaining his presidency at the central bank

The markets are a flutter with one single headline:

The Swiss National Bank's troubled Chairman Philipp Hildebrand - who despite being cleared of any wrong-doing in conjunction to his wife's questionable currency purchases just days before the Swiss Franc's devaluation - has lost to the court of public opinion and has clearly bowed to pressure to resign.

Hildebrand will be making a statement at 15:15  CET in Berne.
