    Policy rate unchanged at 0.5 percent, as widely expectedNorges Bank kept the policy rate unchanged at 0.5 percent at today’s meeting, as widely expected. The central bank was also careful not to send any new signals and its assessment of the economic development was deliberately balanced, despite actual numbers having been somewhat on the weak side of Norges Bank’s expectation. The most notable deviation for the central bank’s forecast has been the weaker-than-expected inflation.
