    Key Quotes

    “Colombia’s central bank meets Friday and is expected to hike rates 50 bp to 5.75%. This would follow a larger than expected 50 bp hike last month”.

    “However, the market is somewhat split. Of the 18 analysts polled by Bloomberg, 11 see a 50 bp hike, 6 see a 25 bp hike, and 1 sees no hike”.

    “Inflation continues to move higher. At 5.9% y/y in October, it’s the highest since March 2009 and above the 2-4% range for the ninth straight month. As such, further tightening seems likely as we move into 2016”.
