UniCredit Recommends Unwinding Bet of Forint Drop Against Euro

October 04, 2011

Oct. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Investors should unwind bets on a forint drop against the euro, UniCredit SpA said in an e-mail today.

UniCredit remains underweight on all Hungarian assets, Vienna-based strategist Gyula Toth said. The bank is keeping its recommendation of betting on a strengthening Polish zloty against the forint, he said.

“We believe the most important game changer for Hungary would be a potential renewed cooperation with the IMF,” Toth said.
