Banxico cuts its policy rate for the 5th meeting in a row

The monetary policy rate has plenty of room to decline without affecting inflation or the MXN.

Key points

  • Key points:
  • In an unanimous vote Banxico lowered the rate to 7.00%
  • The wording of the statement remains cautious and somewhat hawkish
  • In our view, at least a neutral stance (nominal rates of 6.0% or lower) is warranted but Banxico’s hawkishness tilts the risks to less cuts not more
