In a surprising move, Poland’s Monetary Policy Council (MPC) decided to keep interest rates steady, causing a sudden surge in the value of the Polish zloty. On Wednesday afternoon, the zloty strengthened to PLN 4.43 against the euro, defying the expectations of many analysts who had anticipated a 25-basis-point cut.

The MPC’s decision to maintain the reference interest rate at 5.75 percent came as a shock to the financial market, where speculations had been rife about a potential rate reduction. This unexpected development led to a swift and notable uptick in the Polish zloty’s value, highlighting the market’s sensitivity to the MPC’s decisions and the economic landscape.
