European election creates uncertainty - Monthly comment from Swedbank Investment Center

The development on many stock exchanges, including the Swedish one, was negative in April. Oil prices fell slightly, but remain at a high level. The weak Purchasing Managers' Index has led to fears that the German recovery is too slow. In addition, there is uncertainty following the elections in France and Greece, and concern surrounding Spanish growth and the budget deficit.

Repo rate unchanged at 1.50 per cent

Following the sharp slowdown in the Swedish economy towards the end of last year, it is now possible to discern some positive signs. At the same time, inflation is low and expected to remain so over the coming year. Monetary policy needs to remain expansionary to support the recovery. The Executive Board of the Riksbank has therefore decided to hold the repo rate unchanged at 1.50 per cent. The repo-rate path is also unchanged.
