    General Currency Info - Danish krone

    The Danish krone contributes to a little less than 1% of foreign exchange market volume. It is the world’s twentieth most traded currency. The krone is subdivided into 100 øre.

    Denmark is one of more than twenty nations and territories which currently pegs its currency to the euro. Denmark is the largest nation to do this.

    Denmark is a member of the European Union but like the UK and Sweden, among other countries, it opted out of adopting the euro upon its introduction in 1999.

    As part of the ERM II mechanism, the krone is restricted to moves of 2.25% above or below a fixed euro-krone exchange rate of 7.4604. In other words, the euro-krone rate can trade only between 7.2925 and 7.6282, and it is the role of Denmark’s central bank, Danmarks Nationalbanks, to ensure this happens.

    Since 2004, the EUR/DKK rate has traded well within its allowed boundaries. Several times it ventured above 7.47, but no higher, and its most dramatic fall was only to 7.42.

    Against the world's reserve currency, the US dollar, the krone was historically strongest in April 2008 when USD/DKK fell to just 4.66. The krone was at its weakest in February 1985 when USD/DKK reached 12.37.


    DKK Forecasts and Trends

    Against the US dollar, the Danish krone struck a 2-year low in May, at kr6.724 per USD, though that mostly reflected the greenback’s broad-based strength.

    Like the euro to which it is pegged, against the pound, the krone experienced a record 14-day winning streak in May, and at the time of writing it remained near 4-month highs, at kr8.47.

    In May, currency forecasts from Deutsche Bank implied more krone depreciation. The bank thinks USD/DKK could exceed kr6.8 over the summer, with key drivers being the US-China trade war, Brexit and Italian risks.
