Zloty Weakens as Polish Manufacturing Gauge Slips Below Forecast

Follow us on:

March 1 (Bloomberg) -- The zloty retreated against the euro, snapping a five-day winning streak, after a report showed Polish manufacturing slipped to stagnation from expansion in February.

The zloty lost 0.4 percent to 4.1344 per euro as of 9:12 a.m. in Warsaw, after rising to the strongest level in almost seven months yesterday. Its decline was the second-steepest among 25 emerging-market currencies tracked by Bloomberg.

The purchasing managers’ index, a gauge of manufacturing, fell to 50 from 52.2 in January as employment and export orders fell, HSBC Holdings said in an e-mailed statement summarizing the results of a survey by Markit Economics. The median estimate of 17 economists in a Bloomberg survey was 51.1. A reading above 50 indicates expansion, while a figure below 50 shows a contraction.
