An hour later, it even reached the level of PLN 5.64 (an increase of 30%).

“It’s good that at least the Ministry of Finance is watching over”

Economist Marek Zuber explained in an interview with tvn24.pl that such large jumps on the currency market would only be possible in crisis situations, but usually they result simply from systemic errors.

He added that the current situation cannot be compared, for example, to the crisis of 2007/2008, when “everything changed on the markets in one day.”

“It is true that the NBP, as it is responsible for the stability of the zloty, should calm the markets, but the NBP is still fighting for J. Kurski in the World Bank with its recent posts on its wall,” economist Rafał Mundry commented on Monday’s confusion.

“It’s good that at least the Ministry of Finance is watching,” he added.
