The Polish zloty and the Czech crown regained lost ground later on Thursday while the forint remained stuck at around Ft 360 per euro, signalling that Hungary-specific factors also played a role in this development.
As inflation has risen in Hungary, real interest rates have deteriorated in recent months, meaning a worse return for those investing in forints, he added.
Virovácz said the MNB’s monetary council meets next week to discuss possible monetary tightening measures, but market players do not expect a tightening policy, which is reflected in a weaker forint now.
