- What we see (and what is symptomatic of the way financial institutions work in Western Europe and the US) is that Western Europe investors are either “risk-on” or “risk-off”; an expression I do not much like. If the news is bad we are risk-off, whereas if there is a bit of good news, we are risk-on. This approach has an impact on the Zloty exchange rate on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. At the moment, I would say that the basic trade between Poland and Europe in general is risk-on - Ben Habib said.
