Fast Comment Sweden — September inflation unexpectedly back in line with Riksbank's forecast: Exit night, enter light?

  1. No, worries remain. Base effects from last year’s drought-induced price spikes mean inflation set to pick up more
  2. However, forward-looking indicators are rolling over, so next year will see durably slower inflation
  3. Still likely that the Riksbank will call off planned rate rises, in our view
