Hungary's forint leads gains, buoyed by optimism over EU funds talks



BUDAPEST, Sept 20 (Reuters) - Hungary's forint rose half a percent in early trade on Tuesday, benefiting from investors' hopes that Budapest might in the end meet European Union (EU) demands and deliver on its pledges to be able to secure billions of euros in EU funding.

Hungary's government submitted the first of several anti-corruption bills to parliament late on Monday as it scrambles to avoid losing EU money, after the EU executive recommended on Sunday suspending funds worth 7.5 billion euros for what it sees as Hungary's failure to combat corruption and uphold the rule of law.

More legislation is expected to come this week as Budapest tries to convince the European Commission with its reforms to withdraw its proposed sanctions against Hungary by Nov. 19.

"Right now, there is no negative gloom and doom hanging above us, so players have been also selling the Polish zloty and buying the forint," a dealer in Budapest said, adding that he expected the forint to trade between 395-405 versus the euro in coming weeks.

He said the Federal Reserve's upcoming policy meeting, in which the U.S. central bank is widely expected to deliver another hawkish interest rate hike, could weigh on emerging markets, including Central European assets.

Hungary has been locked in rule of law disputes with the European Commission this year, which has put at risk its access to EU funds and has weakened the forint at a time when the central bank struggles to curb double-digit inflation.

The currency has lost more than 7% so far this year, making it central Europe's worst performer.

The forint EURHUF= was up 0.5% at 398.25 per euro on Tuesday. Elsewhere, other currencies in central Europe also mostly firmed slightly, with the Czech crown EURCZK= gaining 0.1%. The Polish zloty EURPLN= was flat. "The forint has gained strength, with the euro/forint rate getting below important support levels. If the currency can hold firmer than 399.62 then the (positive) correction towards 394 could continue," brokerage Equilor said in a note.
