Central Bank of Egypt’s (CBE) Overnight Deposit Rate

 In Uncategorized

The Central Bank of Egypt unexpectedly cut its key overnight deposit rate by 50 bps to 8.25 percent during its November meeting, surprising markets that expected no changes. The move follows a similar margin cut on September 24th and brings borrowing costs to its lowest level since 2014. Policymakers noted that the annual inflation rate rose to 4.5% in October mainly driven by the cost of food. The Committee said that the outlook for inflation in the last quarter of 2020 is estimated to be in the low single digits range, with an increased likelihood of coming under the target floor of 6%. Policymakers added that the decision to cut rates provides appropriate support to economic activity while remaining consistent with price stability over the medium term. The Committee said it will closely monitor all economic developments and will not hesitate to utilize all available tools to support the recovery of economic activity, within its price stability mandate. source: Central Bank of Egypt
