Macro Comment Sweden — The EURSEK revisited

The Swedish krona has weakened lately, and as we do not see any near-term triggers for a marked decline in the EURSEK, we revise our forecast for Q4 to 9.60 (previously: 9.30). Moreover, we now expect the decline in the EURSEK in 2018 to be less pronounced, as the main driver, namely a turnaround in the Riksbank's policy, is not on the cards until the second half of the year.

Swedish Rate Wrap — Riksbank not rocking the boat, despite record high inflation

This summer has offered several pieces of evidence that Sweden's economy is performing strongly. Second-quarter GDP was significantly higher than seen during the first three months and the July rate of inflation exceeded 2 per cent. Regarding the latter, we are convinced that this is of a temporary nature. The extremely expansionary monetary policy is becoming more and more difficult to explain. On the other side of the scales are a stronger krona and the ECB. However, ahead of the Riksbank's September meeting, we think that any potential hawks on the Executive Board will keep a low profile, and we don't anticipate any news about the repo rate path or any other essential communication.  For more details, see page 3.
