TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The Swedish crown plummeted to a 17-year low on Thursday after the country’s central bank delayed its next interest rate hike.

The Riksbank began normalising policy in December due to a strong economy but it has since joined its counterparts in Europe and Canada in adopting a cautious outlook.

Still, its message of restraint and concern about weak inflationary pressure caught some investors off guard.

The crown sank 1.4 percent versus the dollar to 9.55, its lowest since August 2002 and was headed for its biggest daily loss versus the euro since November.
