- Last week, economic data showed that Hungary May CPI came in slightly lower than expected at 5.1% (vs. 5.3% exp.), leading to more hawkish tone from NBH policymaker.
- As a result, deputy Governor Barnabas Virag once again confirmed on Thursday that he sees the end of ultra-loose monetary policy due to sustained CPI risks and therefore thinks that the NBH needs to gradually normalize ST rates. Virag expects CPI to be higher than 4% this year (above the NBH upper tolerance band).
- NBH Governor György Matolcsy also mentioned that monetary tightening is necessary following CPI data.
