Don't say I didn't warn you

Back on April 5 I suggested caution for anyone planning to invest in Hungary in light of the expected landside win of Fidesz. The victory was indeed a landslide, and guess what? In case you’re not up on the news, here are two stories from Bloomberg: Forint Tumbles to 14-Month Low, Bond Risk Soars on IMF Talks and Hungary Refuses Further Austerity After IMF Talks End.

  1. Brenda,

    Thanks for the advice. After reading your piece I shorted the f out of Hungarian banks. Alas, it was only in my mind :(

    Nice call!
