The central bank of Israel left its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 0.1 percent on October 8th 2018, in line with market expectations, saying that annual inflation fell more than expected to 1.2 percent in August, the lowest since May. However, inflation rate is still expected to rise and move to the target range of 1 to 3 percent. Policymakers added that a sharp appreciation of the shekel is the main risk to the inflation outlook. Since the previous meeting, the currency gained about 0.2 percent in terms of the nominal effective exchange rate. Regarding growth, policymakers expect the economy to expand 3.7 percent in 2018 and 3.6 percent in 2019. Interest Rate in Israel averaged 5.61 percent from 1996 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 17 percent in June of 1996 and a record low of 0.10 percent in February of 2015.
