Weekly comment from Swedbank Investment Center: Market climate makes for uncertainty in stockmarkets

Last week was an off-week for stockmarkets. First quarter macro figures came in weaker than market expectations, which resulted in risky assets being sold and profits taken. Most stockmarkets did well in the first three months so there was quite a bit of profit to take. Slower economic growth statistics from China and recurring concerns about growth in Europe also contributed to market uncertainty.

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.
