Swedish Rate Wrap — Rising inflation sets stage for continued pressure on interest rates

Following recent dramatic increases in rates, predominantly in the US, it is fitting to examine how much higher rates can go. Rising inflation and a continued strong economy moving forward indicate a continued upside.

On the domestic front, we conclude that the Riksbank remains on track to hike the repo rate in September, despite a significantly lower inflation forecast. We will also review next week's vital CPI figures, which will set the tone for the entire year.
