Hungarian central bank maintains interest rates

Hungary's central bank decided to maintain its base rate unchanged as inflation nears the lower limit of its tolerance band.

The monetary council of the Magyar Nemzeti Bank kept the base rate at 0.90% and the overnight deposit rate at negative 0.15%. The interest rate conditions will become effective on Feb. 28.

Annual inflation has eased to 2.1% in January from as much as 2.6% in August 2017. The current inflation figure is nearing the lower edge of a tolerance band around the monetary authority's 3% target.
