GBP/PLN Chart – British Pound to Polish Zloty

The intersection of the pound and the Polish zloty (GBP/PLN) is considered an exotic financial instrument in the financial market. The pair has small liquidity and, therefore, a very significant level of spread (25-30 points). If we are talking about predictability, then the GBP/PLN pair should be classified as the average predictable pair. This is because both the pound and the zloty are the currencies of the EU countries and are moving in a similar direction, on the other hand, the economies of England and Poland are very different from each other.

The main thing about the currency in the pair

GBP is a symbol of the British pound. The US dollar has a significant impact on the pound. Accordingly, in anticipation of the subsequent valuation process by the GBP/PLN pair, it is necessary to take into account the main economic characteristics of the country. These include refinancing, gross domestic product growth, unemployment, the number of new employees, and others. It should be noted that the pound reacts at different speeds to changes in the US economy.

Therefore, the GBP/PLN pair is an essential criterion for obtaining information about the monetary units for each of the currencies in the couple. Zloty – decimal currency means that each zloty consists of 100 smaller units. Each of these smaller units is called a penny. Although the valuation of the zloty varies depending on world currency markets, one Polish zloty costs about a quarter of the USA (or 25 cents).

Each banknote shows the historical person of one of the Polish royal families; on the back are symbols of the time when this man lived. For example, on the obverse is 100 zloty is a portrait of King Ladislas II, and on the back is a symbol of his victory in the Battle of Grunwald in 1410.

Since its inception, the Polish zloty has taken many different forms. The term “zloty” comes from the Polish word “zloty” and means “gold.” This value is very significant because the zloty functioned as a coinage for most of its history. Since the Middle Ages, the zloty has been a coin of silver or gold and has been a tool for exchange in the Polish region.

Throughout its history, Poland has changed its currency differently to cope with inflation problems and ensure price stability.

Economic Factors Affecting GBP/PLN

Poland has experienced many periods of increased volatility associated with the valuation in zloty due to continued inflation. To cope with current inflationary problems, the Polish government hired a central bank to manage the zloty.

Narodowy Bank Polski (NBP) is the central bank of Poland. He implements a monetary policy aimed primarily at maintaining price stability. Since 1998, the organization has been directly focused on inflation with an acceptable inflation target of 2.5% with an adequate dispersion of 1% since 2004. In addition to managing inflation in zloty, the NBP enjoys the exclusive right to issue money and acts as the regulator of local banks.

However, per capita GDP remains below the EU average: 17% of the country’s population lives below the poverty line.

Almost 55% of the workforce is employed in the services sector of the economy, followed by the industrial sector with 30%. 12.6% of the workforce is engaged in the agricultural industry, which accounts for only about 3% of Polish GDP. The principal industries in Poland are coal mining, iron and steel production, shipbuilding, and chemical fertilizer production. Poland’s largest trading partner is Germany, followed by Russia and individual EU countries.
