Banks’ Response to Rising Rates & Liquidity Concerns


Norway's central bank keeps rate at 1.50%

Norges Bank kept its policy rate unchanged at 1.50% as economic growth and inflation conditions remained largely within expectations.

The Norwegian central bank delivered its third rate hike last month on the back of solid economic growth and above-normal capacity utilization. The move was seen as a deviation from an easing trend that followed the U.S. Federal Reserve's rate cut during that month.

In an Oct. 24 statement, Governor Øystein Olsen said the policy rate will "most likely remain at the present level in the coming period" based on rate-setters' assessment.

The central bank said underlying price growth remains within projection, though it warned that a weak krone may result in higher inflation.
