Riksbank believes the krona will strengthen

The Riksbank’s forecast indicates the krona will strengthen. The current weakening could be temporary and the market ought not to read too much into recent fluctuations, said first deputy governor of the Riksbank Kerstin af Johnick to journalists in Copenhagen on Tuesday.

She also said that Swedish house prices may cool down somewhat but the Riksbank does not believe there will be a major drop in house prices.
