"Against the background of already existing and expected conditions in labor market and inflation, the committee has decided to keep a target interval of a rate of FRS at the level of 2-2,25%" — I have reported the regulator. As earlier reported Reuters agency, I predicted FRS at the end of 2017 that in 2018 the key interest rate will be raised three times, but some investors believe that the tax and budgetary stimulation and signs of inflationary pressure can lead to one more increase in a rate. In 2018 FRS already three times raised a rate. On March 21 she has grown from 1,25-1,5% to 1,5-1,75%, on June 13 — to 1,75-2% and on September 26 — to 2-2,25%.
