Banks Of Thailand & Canada Raising The Rates

Recommended Posts


BOT likely to raise 14-day repo by 0.25%: KRC

BANGKOK, March 8 (TNA) – The Bank of Thailand’s Monetary Policy Committee is expected to raise a 14-day repurchase rate by 25 basis points at its meeting on Wednesday and further increase the rate in next meetings, according to the Kasikorn Research Center.
The leading think tank projected MPC would raise the policy interest rate to 4.50 per cent from 4.25 per cent at current as part of its effort to pursue the strict interest policy.
KRC attributed the upward adjustment of the short-term repo to the continued economic growth, higher inflation rates and overseas interest rate hike.

Thailand may not be a big player in the world but the reason for their hike may be significant: rates elsewhere are going up. Hard to buck the trend. B o E's options may be narrowing as the world moves toward much higher rates. The economic cycle moves inexorably forward.


BoC raises rate to 3.75%


Globe and Mail Update

The Bank of Canada raised its key lending rate for the fifth time in a row Tuesday, as expected, and said “modest” rate hikes may be required in the future.

It’s just as well that the BOE are so efficient – they have already seen the problem and have raised IR’s very early in the game – so early in fact they was able to lower them 0.25% months ago
