Risk appetite diminishes

Riksbank and Norges Bank decisions in focus: Tomorrow, we expect the Riksbank to keep its repo rate unchanged at -0.5% and announce no changes to its QE programme. Given some market expectation for central bank easing, we expect modest SEK strength as a result of policy inaction. We expect no changes from Norges Bank either. The bank is likely to maintain its recently adopted rhetoric but could express some discomfort with recent NOK appreciation. We remain short NOKSEK spot.

Australia’s headline CPI rose by 0.7% on a q/q basis in Q3, more than expected. The upside surprise was driven largely by one-off factors, which pushed up fresh food prices. Underlying inflation remains low. Following today’s inflation release, expectations of further rate cuts in 2016 have declined further, with the OIS mark pricing in only an 8% likelihood of further easing by December. We continue to expect the RBA to stay on hold on hold through 2016.
