The Czech koruna opened stronger today at 28,36 CZK/EUR and stayed calm in the morning. Then, a negative sentiment spread from the South Africa to the emerging currencies and pushed the koruna back to the 28,50 zone. Light correction of the markets in the evening didn´t bring any gains to the koruna and so the closing rate is 28,51 CZK/EUR .
The CZK lost against the dollar too. The American currency firms profiting from the emerging markets weakening. No economic news influenced today trading, when US jobless claims were in line with expections. The koruna closed at 22,67 against the dollar today.
