The National Bank of Slovakia (NBS) again intervened on the currency market yesterday, spending an estimated 100 million euro to bring the Slovak crown back up to 44.5SKK/EUR, a level it has said is satisfactory.
After 18 months of inactivity, the NBS has intervened three times in the last fortnight to defend the crown against a strong weakening trend in the run-up to national elections in September.
