Poland's zloty & T-bonds relatively calm, wait for news on EU budget
Poland's zloty is seen likely to move in EUR/PLN 4.10-4.13 range, while T-bonds will stay calm ahead of decisions on EU budget and support for Greece as well as end-month domestiic figures, local players told PAP Thursday morning.
"The market is calm, the US market is closed due to a holiday," Kredyt Bank FX dealer Robert Kesicki told PAP Thursday morning. "The zloty stands at EUR 4.115 and will remain in EUR/PLN 4.10-4.13 range."
The Polish currency is likely to react to the news on financial support for Greece and - on the domestic front - to statements from the Monetary Policy Council (MPC) members.
The Polish T-bond market still remains under the impression of the Wednesday switching auction but trade is limited as US investors are absent.
"The auction was announced a success by the Finance Minister, but the structure of the demand shows that fixed-rate bonds may be expensive," BNP Paribas bond portfolio manager Blazej Wajszczuk told PAP.
The results of the EU budget summit, the issue of support for Greece and Poland's GDP figures to be released on November 30 will all be significant to the bond market in the coming days, Wajszczuk stressed.
On Wednesday Poland sold PLN 10.2 bln in WZ0117, WZ0121 and DS1023 papers during a switching auction, buying back PLN 10.4 bln in maturing bonds, the Finance Ministry said in a statement.
