In today’s comprehensive EURCZK forecast , we will first scrutinize the current economic conditions in Czech Republic. Following that, we will meticulously delve into the details of the technical analysis pertaining to the EUR CZK pair.
Czech Republic’s Producer Inflation Rate Hits Lowest
In September 2023, the Czech Republic saw a decrease in its annual producer inflation rate, which measures the average change in prices received by domestic producers for their output. The rate dropped to 0.8% from 1.8% in the previous month, marking the lowest rate since January 2021. This was slightly below market forecasts, which had predicted a rate of 1.1%.
Here’s a breakdown of what happened in different sectors:
Mining & Quarrying: Prices eased in this sector, with the inflation rate dropping from 45% in August to 42.5% in September.
Electricity, Gas, Steam & Air-Conditioning Supply: There was a significant decrease in prices in this sector as well, with the inflation rate falling from 11.7% to 4.4%.
Manufacturing: The deflation (negative inflation) rate in this sector decreased slightly, moving from -2.2% to -1.6%. This means that prices fell at a slower pace than before.
Water Supply: Inflation remained steady in this sector at 16.3%.
On a monthly basis, producer prices increased by 0.3%, following a 0.2% rise in August. This was closely aligned with market forecasts, which had predicted an increase of 0.4%.

The EUR CZK (Euro currency against Czech Koruna) has been experiencing a positive trend since May 2023. This bullish momentum has seen the EURCZK price break free from its previous bearish channel, and it is currently trading within a narrow bullish channel near the pivotal 24.73 mark. The Stochastic oscillator, a popular momentum indicator, is currently in the overbought zone (Weekly chart). This suggests that we might be on the cusp of a trend reversal or a price correction.
For a more detailed view of the EURCZK forecast and price action, it’s recommended to zoom into the 4-hour chart.
Here, you’ll notice that EURCZK is trading within a specific range, highlighted by a box. It’s important to note that this currency pair is nearing the significant 24.73 barrier on the weekly chart, and the Stochastic oscillator remains in the overbought zone. Technical indicators suggest that bearish momentum is gaining strength, so it’s advised not to go long unless the EURCZK bulls manage to break out of the pivot and close above it.
In this forecast, we’re primarily focusing on the bearish scenario. Therefore, FxNews analysts suggest that if the EURCZK closes below the box (which is under the 24.5 area), we can expect the decline to continue to S1 (24.5), followed by the lower line of the bullish channel.
