After months of strength, we’ve almost forgotten what it feels like when the euro starts at four. Then, in mid-March, the American bank failures and fears about the European financial sector highlighted again that the HUF is still one of the most vulnerable currencies in Europe and the emerging market. There are still serious risks related to the Hungarian currency, so it seems that even the extremely high 18 percent interest rate can only temporarily keep speculators away from the HUF.
