The Czech stocks closed higher today due to MOC basket buying. We saw a nice rally in CEZ today with a buying appetite coming from Poland where the volume was 10x of the average. The stock closed at its intraday high of CZK 895. NWR was also well bid in Prague with international accounts buying its shares. Komercni banka was zigzagging to finish the day 0.6% up at CZK 3720. The rest of the board was rather quiet, volumes are still below the long-term average.
