An overly cautious Banxico cut its policy rate to 7.25%

There is still plenty of room to cut rates; we expect the monetary policy stance to reach neutrality by the summer of next year.

Key points

  • Key points:
  • Split vote with only one member voting for lowering the rate to 7.00% as opposed to two members in November
  • Today’s statement reinforces our view of a gradual rate cut cycle: we expect the policy rate to reach 6.0% by August 2020
  • In our opinion, a faster easing pace and a looser monetary policy stance are warranted but we expect Banxico to remain cautious
