Koruna Shows Light Weakness But Stays Near Multi-Year Highs


EUR/CZK has edged higher and last changes hands +0.020 at CZK23.946, hovering just above multi-year lows printed yesterday. Bulls need further gains past the 50-DMA (CZK24.209) to get some reprieve, while bears keep an eye on yesterday's trough (CZK23.897).
