External feelings dominate the zloty. This in turn, given the actual scenario of weak global economic situation and massive energy price increases in Europe, remains unfavorable for risk-averse assets. EUR/PLN صرف exchange rate It is still at historically high levels (around 4.80), although there is a lower probability of a permanent breakout of 5.00 PLN per euro due to discounting several potential threats. In the fourth quarter of 2022, we see no room for a significant strengthening of the zloty, as we anticipate factors supporting interest in so-called safe havens (Zloty negative). The more extreme this volatility increases as a result of a possible escalation of the energy crisis.

Moreover, in the short term, local factors will not be arguments that would favorably distinguish the zloty from the rest of the region. A delayed influx of KPO funds or a deepening of negative interest rates (the monetary policy board is ready to end the tightening cycle soon and CPI inflation may increase at the beginning of 2023) will build a picture of the local currency that is not very attractive to foreign investors. The importance of transparent central bank rhetoric or the lack of major disagreements between a member state and the European Union is demonstrated by the examples of the Czech koruna (by far the best-performing among Central and Eastern European currencies) and a regional outsider, ie the Hungarian forint.

The outlook for the zloty in 2023 looks a little better

However, the slight appreciation of the Polish currency, which we expect, will be due to global sentiment supporting all emerging market currencies, and not to the domestic aspects. Although we make a positive assessment of the situation that the Polish economy, unlike the euro, will avoid a recession, while the issue of persistent macroeconomic imbalances (inflation, high general government deficit, current account deficit), fiscal tensions in the election year and the conflict in Ukraine may It causes anxiety (a further increase in CDS rates).

The short-term prospects for the zloty worsened even more,

This is expressed as an increase in the expected rate of EUR / PLN at the end of the year to 4.75 (versus 4.60 previously). However, in the current conditions, point forecasts are saddled with high risks, and in the face of rising threats, we still consider the scenario of continued weakness of the zloty to be too high. On the other hand, next year is the period of the expected moderate increase in the EUR/USD exchange rate, which is negatively correlated with changes in the EUR/PLZ pair, which will be a source of gradual strengthening of the zloty.
