New cabinet shakes crown


THE SLOVAK crown dipped on currency markets immediately upon news of the new Smer-SNS-HZDS coalition yesterday, weakening by 0.15 Sk to 38.3 SKK/EUR.

UniBanka dealer Patrik Malec told the SME daily he expects the crown to continue to fall, and the central bank to intervene.
