Key points

  • Key points:
  • The tone of the statement is broadly unchanged, but it has some tweaks that could be interpreted as hawkish
  • Yet, the wording showed no signs that the majority of the Board could lean to increase the tightening pace
  • The sizable upward revision in Banxico's expected core inflation path suggests that the odds of additional hikes in early 2022 have increased
