View on Pre-Monetary Policy

“The off-cycle rate hike has stoked expectations of front loading of rate hike decisions by RBI. With US not yet relenting on moderating pace and quantum of rate hikes, and inflation not showing immediate signs of abating, it seems yet another slam dunk decision to hike rates in the upcoming policy. Quantum of rate hike (40-50bps in our view) will be a key determinant in extrapolating the terminal repo rate for FY 2023. Though aggressive tightening is already discounted by the bond markets, the stance of the policy will continue to assume significance in the direction of bond yields .”
