|The Polish zloty continues to benefit from the positive sentiment after the US evaded fiscal cliff and should trade in a EUR/PLN 4.05-4.09 range on Thursday, while T-bonds weaken following core markets and ahead of major Thursday's auction, local players told PAP. |
"The zloty opened stronger, due to the agreement on the fiscal cliff in the US, and should stay in a EUR/PLN 4.05-4.09 range in the coming days," BRE Bank FX dealer Marcin Turkiewicz told PAP. "The Polish currency stays rather in a sideways trend."
Rate-setters statements and the behavior of investors on core markets will constitute the key factors influencing the zloty, in Turkiewicz's opinion.
Polish T-bonds, on the other hand, saw yields rise following in the footsteps of core markets and ahead of Thursday's auction, which will determine further developments on the debt market, traders said.
"If the entire issue is sold and there will be some buyers left for these papers, it's possible yields will begin to fall, otherwise the current trend will continue," BGZ bond trader Piotr Koluda told PAP.
"So far, it looks that demand will not exceed supply a lot, if at all," Koluda said. "Selling the entire supply will be a success, but it may be difficult."
Poland will offer PLN 3.0-5.9 bln in DS1023 and WS0429 papers during Thursday's auction.
