Central bank cuts base rate 50 bps vs. 25 bps consensus

The Monetary Council of the National Bank of Hungary (MNB) on Monday trimmed the 6.75% base rate by 50 basis points to 6.25%, against analysts' consensus of a 25-bp cut. The council explained the move with favourable inflation trends caused by a stable exchange rate, increasing import competition and moderate growth in consumption.
