Sweden To Jump On The Band Wagon And Hike I R

Swedish interest rate hike "likely in April"

Published: 12th April 2006 12:26 CET

Inflation in Sweden is creeping up and could be paving the way for a rise in interest rates within two weeks, say analysts.
And that could mean that increasing interest rate costs swallow part of the government's planned pre-election expenditure in areas such as child benefit.
The Riksbank has already raised the key interest rate twice this year, taking it from a record low of 1.5% to 2.0%. Most analysts have been anticipating a pause, with a third increase in June. But recent statistics have strongly increased the chances of an interest rate rise in April.

Hot housing market apt to spur interest rates upward
