NBP Retains Interest Rate of 2.0% Despite Decelerated Growth

NBP Retains Interest Rate of 2.0% Despite Decelerated Growth

Walker England, Kara Dailey,

Talking Points:

  • National Bank of Poland Holds Rates Steady at 2.0% for second month
  • While GDP slows to 3.3%, unemployment decreases to 11.3%
  • USDPLN fails to break resistance at 3.400

Despite a deceleration in growth, the polish economy in its entirety remains stable enough to limit the risk of inflation remaining below the mid-term target of 2.5%. In accordance, the National Bank of Poland held the key reference rate at 2.0%.

In their review, the Monetary Council noted that sluggish imports and exports negatively impacted third quarter GDP, causing it to decelerate to 3.3% from 3.5% in Q2. Additionally retail sales were down 0.1% in October and remained weak in November (2.3%), coming in below the expected 2.9 percent. Evident that demand and cost pressures were absent, CPI in October fell from -0.3 to -0.6%. However in balancing out these ill effects unemployment in the tenth month fell to 11.3% after registering 11.5% in September. In addition to unemployment successively declining in every month of the year, monthly wages in October were up 4.3% over the previous year.

Global economic activity also displayed variation. While third quarter economic growth in the US remained fairly robust at 3.9%, Russia and China each observed a recent weakening, with China cutting their benchmark rate by 0.40 basis points. Similarly while increases in consumption and fixed capital formation kept third quarter UK GDP stable at 0.7%, effects from April’s VAT increase left Japan running an asset purchase program. Commodities have shared a similar fate this week with USoil declining and copper and gold recovering.

With a cautious but stable domestic and global outlook, the zloty held off the US dollar with the pair failing to break resistance at 3.400.
