Banxico ends hiking cycle but will keep rates on hold for a while

With this decision, Banxico ended the fastest ever rate-hiking cycle, acknowledged that a "disinflationary phase is underway" but stated that it will keep the policy rate “at its current level for an extended period”

Key points

  • Key points:
  • Banxico revised down its 2023 headline inflation path to bring it closer to our forecasts
  • Monetary policy will remain very tight during 2023-24
  • With inflation easing towards 4.5% by year end, we think Banxico should start to cut rates in 4Q
