Besides some important quarterly numbers, there will also be interest rate decisions on an ongoing basis from both Denmark and abroad this week. Some of the highlights come from the US Federal Reserve and the Bank of England, where the former, according to several senior economists, is expected to raise interest rates again by 0.75 percentage points.

The Norges Bank rate decision on Thursday will also get a lot of attention.

In a morning report from DNB Markets, it was stated that “Market outlook for Norges Bank is split”:

There is roughly the same probability of a 25 basis point rate increase as there is for 50 basis point, and we’re leaning more towards 50 basis point. There are several reasons for this. First, overseas interest rates have risen significantly since September, which is in line with analysts’ upward revision to inflation estimates for both this year and next, analyst Kerry Amdahl wrote.

Then the macroeconomists at DNB Markets list reasons 2 and 3 for an interest rate increase of 0.5 percentage point:

  • Capacity utilization in the Norwegian economy is slightly higher than the Norges Bank assumed in its September monetary policy report.
  • September price hike higher than Norges Bank estimates

– GDP on the mainland has been somewhat stronger in recent months than the Norges Bank estimated in September. In addition, registered unemployment has remained below the Norges Bank’s estimate, although it does not exceed a tenth, writes Aamdal.

Analysts’ upward revision to growth forecasts also indicates that the drivers of the Norwegian economy are unlikely to have weakened more than what the Bank of Norway assumed a month and a half ago.

For their part, Handelsbanken analysts believe Norges Bank will raise “only” 25 basis points this week.
