Repo rate in Sweden unchanged at 1.0 per cent

Growth prospects are gradually brightening, but at the same time the forecast is that it will now take longer before inflation attains the target of 2 per cent. The repo rate needs to remain at a low level for a longer period of time to support the recovery to ensure that inflation rises towards the target. The Executive Board of the Riksbank has therefore decided to hold the repo rate unchanged at 1 per cent and to make a downward adjustment to the repo-rate path. Increases in the repo rate are not expected to begin until the second half of 2014.

Weekly Comment from Swedbank Investment Center: Last-minute solution for Cyprus

The situation in Cyprus created significant concern last week and most markets tumbled. Cyprus is now getting its emergency loan of EUR 10 billion from the troika (EU, ECB and IMF) but with a pistol pointed to its head. The solution in Brussels was reached in the early hours of Monday and just hours before the European Central Bank’s deadline of stopping the flow of money to Cypriot banks.
