Norwegian Krone Rallies Despite Slowing Economic Growth

April 9, 2019 at 12:49 by Vladimir Vyun

A fan of 50-krone notesThe Norwegian krone rallied against the US dollar today even as Norway’s economic growth slowed.

Statistics Norway reported that the nation’s economy demonstrated growth by 0.6% in the period between December and February, down from 0.9% in the previous reporting period. The sharp decrease in the production of electricity was the main reason for the slowdown. Now, traders wait for inflation data due for release tomorrow.

USD/NOK fell from 8.5434 to 8.5258 as of 12:36 GMT today.
