Oct. 14 (Bloomberg) -- BBVA Bancomer expects Mexico’s central bank to start cutting rates by 25 basis points in December, depending on the exchange rate’s performance, said economist Julian Cubero.
BBVA Bancomer had previously forecast that Banxico, as the central bank is known, would increase rates in May 2013. Cubero spoke in a telephone interview in Mexico City.
Mexico’s central bank kept its benchmark interest rate unchanged today at 4.50 percent for a 22nd straight meeting.
