The complete list of Norwegian ADRs
Norway currently ranks as the 33rd largest economy in export, globally. The gas and oil sectors are two of the major export markets with the fishing industry in Norway. So naturally, the economy is quite sensitive to the changes in prices of the above commodities.
Krone is the primary currency of Norway and stands 14th in rank in the most traded currency in the forex markets. But as it does with any currency, economic changes and trends impact heavily on the fluctuations in the price of the Norwegian Krone (NOK). Investors are known to chase NOK when the EUR is not so confident. Furthermore, when the stock exchanges suffer (globally), investors tend to sell the NOK and buy EUR and USD. Investors thus need to take into account the NOK can swing widely. As late as 2012 many analysts predicted the NOK could be a “mini CHF”, but that didn’t materialize, of course. On the contrary, the NOK has depreciated massively since then: from 7.3 NOK/EUR to over 12 during the Covid-19 crisis.
Norway being the leading oil exporter in Western Europe, fluctuations in the global value of crude oil ends up affecting the NOK’s value. The country’s gross domestic product (GDP) is heavily influenced by its shipping, fishing, manufacturing, and hydroelectric power. With Norway staking its place to be one of the most secure and stable economies of Europe, it is considered a solid investment option.
