Poland's zloty and bonds stable amid expectedly calm session
Poland's zloty and T-bonds are trading stable and are likely to remain so during a calm session, with the FX market likely to be moved only by other than expected data from the American labor market, local players told PAP Friday morning.
"The zloty is stable this morning with EUR/PLN at 4.09 and USD/PLN at 3.145," a BPH FX dealer Andrzej Krzeminski told PAP Friday morning. "We should have a very calm session till the publication of labor market data in the US. A higher than expected number of new jobs created in the US would improve the sentiment and have a positive impact on the Polish currency. "
ThT-bonds are opening Friday at Thursday closing levels amidst a calm market, ING BSK FI trader Marcin Zarzycki told PAP.
"The market opens on closing levels with no clear direction," the dealer said, adding that the bid/ask spreads are still wide in the calm morning trade.
Polish T-bonds should stabilize after a two-day correction, Pekao bank analysts wrote in their morning comment: "Comments of the Deputy Finance Minster on considerable interest in Polish debt should support [T-bonds]," the experts wrote.
Deputy Finance Minister Wojciech Kowalczyk told the daily Rzeczpospolita Friday that Poland enjoys a good position on the T-debt market, allowing it to "dictate terms" and pick best offers.
