Key Quotes

“Aside from the more hawkish members, they will probably be fairly relaxed about the surprise move up in CPI inflation to 2.9% y/y in July and 2.8% y/y in August, above the 2.5% target.”

Apart from mentioning the temporary blip up in inflation, the press conference itself will probably be focused around the European Court of Justice’s ruling regarding the $32bn in non-zloty mortgage loans.”
