Weekly Comment from Swedbank: Continued stimulus measures in US and unchanged interest rate in Sweden

Repo rate in Sweden unchanged at 1 per cent

Following the slowdown in recent years, the outlook for the Swedish economy is brightening. There has been some improvement in the labour market and this is expected to become clearer during 2014. At the same time, inflation is low. The Executive Board of the Riksbank has decided to hold the repo rate unchanged at 1 per cent, to enable inflation to rise towards 2 per cent and to support the economic upturn. The repo rate needs to remain at this low level until economic activity is stronger and inflation rises. As before, the repo rate is not expected to be raised until the end of 2014.

Monthly comment from Swedbank Investment Center: Overweight in equities despite budget crisis in the US

In recent weeks, the global economy has sent several positive signals. The US economy is increasingly robust, Japan’s stimulus measures have had an effect, and the gradual recovery in the eurozone is spreading to more countries. However, all this is currently overshadowed by the stalemate in the US budget negotiations and the need to raise the debt ceiling.
