    UPDATE 1-British American Tobacco's takeover of Twisp wins S.Africa approval

    British American Tobacco's (BAT) proposed takeover of e-cigarette maker Twisp won approval from South Africa's Competition Tribunal on Tuesday after the UK-based group agreed to a series of conditions. The local unit of BAT, the world's second-largest tobacco company by sales, announced the deal in 2017 as part of its efforts to increase its offering of so-called next-generation products or alternatives to smoking cigarettes. BAT, like rivals, is striving for a bigger chunk of the global market for smoking alternatives as volumes of traditional cigarettes continue to slide.

    Four-and-a-half years after the Swiss National Bank dramatically lifted the franc's cap against the euro, markets are betting the central bank may be forced to resume its accumulation of foreign cash yet again to rein in its supercharged currency. The SNB is in a bind as the European Central Bank looks set to ease monetary policy yet again - forcing the Swiss to either double down on its already super-easy policy or intervene again ad hoc to limit the franc against the euro. At last count, total SNB foreign currency reserves were already three quarters of a trillion dollars.

"The ECB changing its targets with regards to inflation could potentially enable it to be more accommodative for longer," said Craig Erlam, senior market analyst at OANDA in London.
