    Key Quotes

    “Bank of Korea meets Tuesday and is expected to keep rates steady at 1.5%”.

    “CPI rose only 0.8% y/y in January, well below the 2.5-3.5% target range”.

    “We think BOK has set the table for more easing, when it cut its growth and inflation forecasts at its January meeting”.

    “This meeting maybe too soon for a rate cut, but we think it becomes more likely in March and April”.

    “With the important JPY/KRW cross moving close to 11, there is not as much urgency for the BOK to cut rates now”.
