The trend for the week of March 18 – March 22 was mixed. Among the four central European countries’ currencies being observed, Poland’s zloty and Romania’s leu saw their respective currencies strengthen in comparison to the Euro. The Hungarian forint and the Czech koruna weakened in relation to the Euro.
This week the currency to watch is the Hungarian forint. The Hungarian forint has continuously strengthened in relation to the Euro over the past two months, constantly staying beneath its lower end of the three-month average. This week marks the first occurrence where the currency has weakened.
