Swedish Rate Wrap — Energy fuels interest rate hikes

Following a period with all eyes on the Italian crisis, attention is now turning toward the far north and the ECB meeting in Riga. Italy could actually induce a hastier decision on tapering the QE programme. We repeat our belief that the programme will come to an end in December this year.

For the Riksbank, most indications suggest a rate hike before year-end, in line with the repo rate path. Inflation outcomes in CPIF terms will be substantially higher than Riksbank forecasts, given current energy prices. Even adjusted for that factor, we believe inflation will land at or above the Riksbank's path, suggesting that the market will gradually price in a greater likelihood of a rate hike. Higher inflation should result in a widening of Swedish bond yield spreads relative to Germany.

Swedish Rate Wrap — Italy once again in the driver’s seat

Last week's Purchasing Manager Index confirmed the slowdown in the global manufacturing cycle and the increasing divergence between the US and the rest of the world.

Growing concern about political developments in Italy caused the market to dust off the PIGS theme, which in turn caused a considerable drop in Swedish bond yields. As a result, the curve is now the flattest it has been in a long time. We therefore change our view of the curve from flatter to neutral.
