EUR/SEK Currency Pair | An Exotic Investment Option

The Euro/Swedish Krona (EUR vs. SEK) is one of the relatively few currency pairs considered exotic. An exotic currency pair is made up of a major currency and the currency of an emerging market, or smaller – but strong – economy. These pairs are not traded as often as the major or minor currencies, which is why oftentimes, the cost of trading these pairs can be higher due to the lack of liquidity in these markets.

The EUR SEK pair specifies how many Swedish Krona (SEK) are needed to purchase 1 Euro (EUR). In other words, the value of this currency pair is quoted as 1 Euro (EUR) per X Swedish Krona (SEK). It can also sometimes be written as EURSEK or EUR/SEK.

Facts about the Euro and the Stocky

The euro is the official currency for more than half of the 27 members of the European Union (EU). The name “euro” was selected in 1995 and replaced the former European Currency Unit (ECU). It was introduced on January 1,1999, and began circulating in 2002. Today, it is one of the strongest currencies and paired with many others by forex traders.

The Swedish Krona (SEK), which is also known as ‘Stocky’ in slang, is named after Stockholm, Sweden’s capital. The Stocky is the official currency of Sweden and has remained separate from the euro as Sweden declined to become a part of the eurozone.

The EUR SEK, a popular currency pair

Although it is considered exotic, the EUR against SEK is popular in the forex market. Traders choose this investment channel due to the high stability and predictability of the eurozone and Sweden's economies.

Sweden is one of the leading economies in the world. It outclasses the other Nordic countries. Its high economic development is the result not only of its large reserves of natural resources but also of its specialist economic sectors.

Sweden is heavily dependent on export volume. It is sensitive to global prices of major energy resources such as oil and natural gas. Price volatility, therefore, may have a significant effect on the Swedish national currency as well as the EUR/SEK pair.
