While the Czech koruna hit a one-week low on Wednesday, the Polish zloty extended previous gains and in intraday trading even hit more than three-month high. Quite interestingly, the koruna was undermined by comments of the central bank vice-governor Hampl who told the Czech parliament the incoming data suggest that inflation risks are skewed to the downside (in comparison with the bank’s current forecast). Hampl reiterated that the domestic demand remains lackluster and that the latest GDP point to weakening of exports. Although Hampl’s comments clearly triggered new bets on interventions (traded volumes were above average yesterday), we think that such a move is not likely at current levels. Let us recall that the CNB’s forecasts for the EUR/CZK pair for the second quarter is 25.30 and even though the bank admits that the risks are slightly antiinflationary, current exchange rate (25.87) provides, in our view, more than enough room for possible revision of its forecast. Regarding the zloty, it extended previous gains yesterday. Apart from the continuing inflow of foreign funds (ten year bond yield fell by 6 basis points), slightly more hawkish than expected rhetoric of governor Belka following the NBP meeting further boosted the zloty. Belka warned of anticipating a rate cut at May’s meeting and said that the bank expects economic activity to stabilize and gradually rebound in months ahead.
