The following were among the most active equities in the Hungarian market today. Stock symbols follow company names.

OTP Bank Nyrt.

Mol Nyrt. (MOL) , Hungary’s biggest refiner, weakened 0.7 percent to 18,760 forint. Oil declined , extending last week’s loss amid concern that consumption will slow in China after the country lowered its growth goal.
