Hungary keeps rates unchanged, as expected

BUDAPEST, Feb 26 (Reuters) - The National Bank of Hungary left its main interest rates unchanged at record lows on Tuesday, as expected, moving a step closer to a key meeting next month where it may give the first signals of how it plans to start normalising monetary policy.

The bank kept its base rate at 0.9 percent and the overnight deposit rate at -0.15 percent, both in line with analyst forecasts in a Reuters poll.

At 1301 GMT, the forint traded at 317.04 versus the euro, unchanged from levels just before the announcement. (Reporting by Gergely Szakacs and Sandor Peto)
