BUDAPEST, April 12 (Reuters) - Hungary’s central bank has offered a total of 50 billion forints ($198.33 million) worth of fixed-rate 5-year and 10-year interest rate swaps to banks on Thursday, the bank said on its Reuters page.
The bank offered 10 billion forints of 5-year interest rate swaps at 0.46 percent, and 40 billion forints worth of 10-year IRS at 1.17 percent. Results will be announced at 1230 GMT.
The amounts and rates are unchanged from a tender held two weeks ago. The swaps are part of the bank’s monetary policy tools announced in November. ($1 = 252.1 forints) (Reporting by Gergely Szakacs and Sandor Peto)
