    FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The research team at BBH has noted this week’s central bank meetings in the LatAm space.

    Key Quotes

    Chile’s central bank meets Thursday and is expected to keep rates steady at 3.5%. CPI rose 4.4% y/y in December, back above the 2-4% target range after a brief move within it. As such, we think the tightening cycle will continue, albeit modestly. The bank just hiked 25 bp in December, and another one this month seems unlikely given the soft economy. A hike is likely later in Q1, however”.
