The Monetary Council of the National Bank of Hungary (MNB) decided to leave the base rate on hold at 13%, but voted to cut the central bank's O/N collateralized loan rate by 100 bp to 18.5% at a monthly policy meeting on Tuesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The council left the O/N deposit rate, at the bottom of the "interest rate corridor", at 12.5%.
The council had cut the O/N collateralized loan rate by 100 bp at their previous monthly policy meeting in May, too.
