The market expects Colombia's central bank to keep its monetary policy rate
The market expects Colombia's central bank to keep its monetary policy rate on hold at 3.00% today. Morgan Stanley says growth is in line with expectations and inflation remains below target. It expects the rate to tighten to 6.00% by the end of 2011. Barclays also sees the rate on hold with tightening beginning in April, although it says there is a risk it could begin later in the year.
