Volatility Alert: Riksbank’s Interest Rate decision tomorrow

08:30 GMT Riksbank rate decision Consensus: -0.50% Previous: -0.50%
  • The forecast is for the Bank to keep its key interest rate unchanged.
  • We share the view for an unchanged policy rate, but we expect the Bank to extend the duration of its QE program as well.
  • The decision may be accompanied with an ultra-dovish message, as November’s CPI and CPIF both lie below the Riksbank’s own forecasts.
  • Such dovish signals could bring SEK under renewed selling interest.

*All trading involves risk. It is possible to lose all your capital.
