Dollar strengthens, but crown holds firm

Despite the recent strengthening of the U.S. dollar, the Czech crown has remained relatively unaffected, despite a small depreciation. At the beginning of Febuary, the crown traded at CZK 21.6: USD 1, and has since weakened to CZK 22.33. It is also still at near all-time highs against the euro. Financial site writes of a new term coined by investors internationally – “higher for longer” – which assumes that interest rates will remain elevated for longer than expected; until inflation subsides. The high U.S. interest rates may prompt an inflow of foreign capital into the country, which could further strength the dollar.
