Slovakian central bank chief Peter Kažimír on Monday poured a drop of cold water on the narrative that the European Central Bank is finished with interest rate rises after Thursday’s hike.

“I wish last week’s interest rate hike was the last one. Nevertheless, common sense dictates, never say never’,” Kažimír said.

Inflation and growth forecasts in December 2023 and March 2024 will show whether the central bank is “unequivocally and steadily” moving toward its inflation goal, he said.

He also said it was “premature” for markets to bet on when the first cuts would occur, and that if rates were at their peak, “we may have to stay camping here for quite some time and spend the winter, spring and summer here.”
