Bank of Israel

October 19, 2017

Israel’s key interest rate was left at 0.1% as expected. A released statement observed continuing sub-target inflation and a recently firmer shekel. Growth is in line with its potential non-inflationary pace and also more balanced than before. Home price inflation is a lessening concern to officials. The central bank interest rate has been at 0.1% since a 15-basis point reduction in February 2015, which followed rate reduction totaling 75 basis points in each of the prior four years through 2014.
