The week of April 15th to April 19th, saw several Central European currencies significantly change in value. To start the week, the Polish zloty (PLN) and the Hungarian forint (HUF) lost value. The zloty continued its downward trend while the forint, after initially declining, stabilized to record a 0.9% decrease by the end of the week. The zloty experienced a 2% decline at its lowest point, which then slightly moderated to end the week with a final decrease of 1.5%. Both the Romanian leu (yellow) and the Czech koruna (blue) showed minimal movement, with neither currency experiencing significant changes throughout the week.
