Macro Comment Norway — Norges Bank set to lower its policy rate path again

In September, Norges Bank surprised analysts by lowering its policy rate path. It seemed global uncertain-ties had made the central bank reassess its outlook for the Norwegian economy. In December, we believe Norges Bank will lower its policy rate trajectory again, effectively cancelling one of the six rate hikes it had planned for the coming three years.
