Inflation ticked down to 4.9% in October (September: 5.0%). Meanwhile, core inflation was stable from September at 3.7%.

Banxico expects inflation to end 2019 at 3.1%. Panelists surveyed by FocusEconomics expect inflation to end 2019 at 3.8%, which is up 0.1 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2020, the panel sees year-end inflation at 3.7%.
