Ad-hoc reports: CNB interest rates remain unchanged

9/29/2022 7:02 PM

At its September meeting, the CNB decided to keep the base repo rate at 7%. This was in line with analysts' and financial market expectations. At the next meeting, according to the governor, rates should either remain unchanged or rise. Without further details, the CNB also confirmed that it was prepared to continue preventing “excessive fluctuations in the exchange rate of the koruna”. Given the unsurprising outcome of today's meeting, we continue to expect rates to remain at their current level for longer than the latest CNB forecast suggests, namely until the middle of next year. In addition to the gradual and prolonged pass-through of energy prices into inflation, this will be supported by the current lack of monetary tightening. We see the risks to our forecast skewed towards higher rates, especially with regard to further wage developments.
