What is the Hungarian Forint (HUF)?
Hungarian Forint or HUF was established in 1946, in a post-war era as the national currency of Hungary. The Hungarian Forint enjoyed a rather stable exchange rate until the early 1990s when the process of transition towards market economy took place. However, today the HUF is a fully convertible currency which indicates that it can be traded without any limitations set by the monetary authorities such as the Central Bank.
Which factors affect HUF value?
The Hungarian economy is characterised as open and export-oriented with some of the major trading partners coming from the EU such as Germany, Italy, France, Romania, Italy and so on. Few of the most important industries in Hungary are manufacturing of vehicles, automobile parts, tourism, electronics, information technology and medical technology. Consequently, factors which have an effect on the individual industries or the overall export levels may cause fluctuations in the HUF value. In addition, changes in the economic and political conditions in the EU will certainly have an impact on the HUF and respectively the BTC to HUF exchange rate, because a big portion of Hungarian exports is made toward EU countries.
Changes in economic or financial indicators or changes in the supply and demand will also affect the BTC/HUF exchange rate and the overall value of HUF. Namely, a large public debt can have an adverse influence on the value of the domestic currency. Additionally, when trading Bitcoin to Hungarian Forint keep an eye on the political situation in Hungary, as there were politically driven situations that had some influence on economic conditions as well as on the HUF strength.
Also, traders should monitor the developments in the Hungarian Government plans to become part of the European Monetary Union and replace the Hungarian forint with the euro.
