Global Monetary Policy Monitor: Monetary Policy decoupling in EME

In October, 20 countries (out of 24 covered) had monetary policy decisions. As in previous months, there was a decoupling among some emerging-market economies. India and Brazil hiked interest rates, given their relatively high inflation and material year-to-date FX depreciation. Meanwhile, countries with low inflation and stable currency – such as Chile, Mexico and Hungary - cut rates to smooth economic deceleration. Developed countries have kept their monetary policy on hold.

Calender for the upcoming monetary decisions in November
