SNB Jaga Ancaman Intervensi seiring Suku Bunga Utama Bertahan di Rekor Rendah
Thursday, 15 March 2018 15:59 WIB | FISCAL & MONETARY |

Bank sentral Swiss mempertahankan suku bunga di titik terendah dan mengulangi ancaman intervensinya, tetap bertahan pada kebijakan yang membantu melemahkan mata uangnya.

Swiss National Bank mengatakan franc tetap "bernilai tinggi" terhadap euro pada hari Kamis dan mengatakan bahwa kebijakan saat ini tetap "penting." Keputusan untuk tidak ada perubahan dalam semua alat moneter telah diantisipasi secara luas.

Meskipun pertumbuhan ekonomi di Swiss dan di kawasan euro sekitarnya telah menguat, tekanan harga masih di bawah rata-rata, dan SNB tidak ingin melakukan apapun yang mengangkat franc dan mengacaukan upaya mereka untuk mengangkat inflasi.

Tapi keputusan Swiss untuk kukuh pada kebijakan moneternya berbeda dengan banyak bank sentral lainnya di dunia. Federal Reserve mungkin menaikkan suku bunga lagi minggu depan, Bank of England telah memberi sinyal pengetatan lebih cepat ke depan, dan bahkan Bank Sentral Eropa baru-baru ini menggeser panduannya, bergerak mendekat untuk keluar kebijakan stimulusnya.

"Situasi di pasar valuta asing masih rapuh dan kondisi moneter bisa berubah dengan cepat," kata SNB, yang dipimpin oleh Presiden Thomas Jordan, dalam sebuah pernyataan.

Swiss menyelesaikan 2017 dengan pertumbuhan yang solid 0,6 persen pada kuartal keempat, didukung oleh membaiknya ekonomi global dan franc yang lebih lemah. Mata uang tersebut turun 8 persen terhadap euro tahun lalu, membantu eksportir yang telah lama tertekan.

Namun, muncul tanda-tanda bahwa pemulihan di kawasan euro, momentumnya mungkin telah kehilangan kecepatan dalam beberapa pekan terakhir - yang akan berdampak pada Swiss - dan AS berencana untuk memberlakukan tarif pada impor baja dan aluminium sehingga memiliki potensi untuk mendapatkan tindakan balasan dari negara lain dan melemahnya kepercayaan.

SNB, yang memiliki suku bunga deposito minus 0,75 persen sejak awal 2015, melihat pertumbuhan sekitar 2 persen tahun ini, tidak berubah dari prediksi sebelumnya.

Inflasi rata-rata 0,6 persen tahun ini dan 0,9 persen pada 2019, kata SNB. Itu dibandingkan dengan perkiraan Desember masing-masing 0,7 persen dan 1,1 persen. Bank sentral juga mengeluarkan perkiraan inflasi tahunan pertama tahun 2020, memperkirakan inflasi sebesar 1,9 persen. (sdm)
