The Central Bank of Iceland unexpectedly raised its seven-day term deposits rate by 25 bps to 4.5 percent on November 7th of 2018. It was the first rate hike since November 2015, saying inflation expectations rose above target and inflation is expected to exceed the target of 2.5 percent for next year, as a result of higher oil prices and depreciation of the króna.
