Hungarian Forint Rises on Austerity Pledges & Economic Outlook

October 1, 2010 at 13:59 by Vladimir Vyun

Hungarian ForintThe Easter European currencies, including the Hungarian forint, were rising today as the improving sentiment about Europe’s economy and the governments’ pledge to cut the budget deficits attracted the foreign funds.

The Hungarian government pledged to narrow the nation’s budget deficit below 3 percent, causing the speculation that Hungary’s rating wouldn’t be downgraded by the Standard & Poor’s. The Hungarian currency was also helped by the improving outlook for the whole European economy, caused by the growing economies in such countries as Germany and Poland.

USD/HUF dropped today from 202.29 to 199.29 as of 11:59 GMT.

    To Whom It May Concern,

    I’d like to move back to Hungary. I am old, but I’d like to die there. I am a Hungarian. Please give me some indication that in the near future approximately from this day to next one year, how the dollar will be seen by the Hungarian Forint. Right now is everything bad here in the USA.
    Please give me a hope to live in peace and to use my very little money (dollar) what I have and enjoy a logical life if any in Hungary not here in the USA.
    Keep in mind I love USA, but I don’t like at all.

    Hungarian forint will probably go up against the USD in a year from now.
