Mexico: 1H-October inflation – Another upward surprise, especially at the core

  • Inflation rose 0.54% 2w/2w, with an adverse seasonality on electricity, with the core up 0.33% on broad pressures

  • Annual inflation increased to 6.12% from an average of 6.00% in September, with the core at 5.12% (previous: 4.92%)

  • We expect Banxico to extend the hiking cycle into year-end and early 2022 as inflation pressures remain elevated
