Key Quotes

“The accompanying release signalled that rates will need to remain lower for longer, and that further cuts may be necessary, with a 65% chance of another cut shown in 2016.”

“In fact, we’d view this as a subtle launch of forward guidance, with rates projected to be over 50bps lower than their June forecast by 2017, with no thought of hiking until end-2018.”

“Norges Bank was sanguine on recent inflation pressures, seeing them as a transitory cost that is necessary in order to smooth the economy’s adjustment to lower oil prices.”
