FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The Hungarian forint is losing ground against the single currency on Tuesday after the softer than expected inflation figures in the domestic economy, pushing the cross to the vicinity of 296.00, although faltering afterwards.

On the downside, a breach of 292.12 (low May 10) would aim for 290.25 (low Feb.20) ahead of the psychological mark at 290.00.
