BUDAPEST Hungary's central bank cut interest rates by a quarter percentage point on Tuesday, delivering its second rate cut in just four weeks to aid the recession-hit economy.
The bank reduced its base rate to 6.5 percent in line with positioning in local markets but -- similarly to last month -- in contrast with analysts' median forecast for steady rates in a Reuters poll.
Central bank Governor Andras Simor will hold a news conference about the decision at 1300 GMT, when the bank will also release key forecasts from its fresh quarterly inflation report.
