The new week started without any clear direction on the main European indices. The core markets, and with them our WIG20, hovered around Friday’s close all day to ultimately maintain the status quo.

The index of the largest companies could not decide for most of the day whether to be above the line or below it. The day was marked by several news from the Polish economy. The data on industrial production published by the Central Statistical Office (GUS) surprised. These show a further slowdown, but are better than analysts’ expectations. Even more interesting was the report on detailed data on salaries, which the aforementioned GUS publishes every two years. We learn from it, among other things, about the wage median in Poland, which has increased in companies employing at least 10 people.

The currency market reacted to the Prime Minister’s comments on actions aimed at strengthening the zloty. From the morning the zloty continued to weaken against the main currencies. However, the statement of Mateusz Morawiecki caused the zloty to recover a bit. Nevertheless, it still remains a very weak currency, as evidenced by the strength of the WIG20 index expressed in the dollar. The index calculated in this way is at the levels from the turn of April and May this year.

In the afternoon, news from overseas was the appointment of Jerome Powell for the next term of office of the head of the American central bank, announced by Joe Biden. The reaction of the markets was the strengthening of the dollar.

CD Projekt shares grew for the third session in a row. The Monday session is another 2.90 percent. and the rate starts looking back towards the round 200 zlotys. The gaming sector is favored by the strong dollar and the specter of further lockdowns in the world.
