Koruna Appreciates Further Despite Losses For CZGBs & PX Index


EUR/CZK has sold off today, refreshing multi-year lows in the process, despite little in the way of notable local headline flow.

When this is being typed, EUR/CZK trades -0.071 at CZK23.631, with bears looking for losses past Aug 1, 2008 low of CZK23.445.

  • Koruna has traded out of sync with CZGBs, which weakened across the curve and last trade 7.3-10.9bp cheaper. The PX index remains softer on the day, but in the grand scheme of things, it is still in a clear uptrend and printed new cyclical highs earlier in the day.
