The center line is a rolling three-month average. The upper and lower boundaries are the average plus and average minus one standard deviation, respectively, for the same three-month period.  

 

For the week of February 12 to February 16th, three Central European currencies remain below their lower bounds. The Czech koruna (CZK), Hungarian forint (HUF), and Romanian leu (RON) have lost value over recent weeks and continue to be below their lower bounds. The Polish zloty (PLN) reached a point above its upper bound this week but has slightly depreciated since.


Notably, the Czech koruna (CZK) has exhibited a trend of depreciating in value since a small rebound in January 2024.
