The koruna lost today and closed at 28,33 CZK/EUR. This is quite good performance compared to today sell-off on emerging stock markets. There was only one macro figure today - the retail sales. But the FX market stayed intact. The CZK/USD rate closed at 22,12 - the koruna firmed against the dollar as the American currency looses on the global markets against the euro. Some hawkish comments came from ECB speakers and supported the euro today.
