Swiss blue-chip index rises despite treaty row with EU

ZURICH, Dec 3 (Reuters) - The blue-chip Swiss Market Index rose 1.4 percent in early trading on Monday as trade tensions eased, overshadowing a Swiss treaty row with the European Union that could affect share trading from next year.

The Swiss government announced plans on Friday to ban trading of Swiss shares on EU stock exchanges from January, in an escalating clash with Brussels that could put a severe dent in cross-border stock trading.
