    Sweden's Riksbank is out with its latest policy announcement. There was no change to the inflation forecasts through 2018 nor to the anticipated repo rate (-0.6% for 2017 and -0.15% for late 2018) but the RIksbank raised its GDP forecasts and suggested that the krona could slowly strengthen over time. The QE programme was extended six months - less than the ECB's. The very small size of Sweden's QE (SEK 30B total) relative to Europe and the extension of less than the ECB extended their programme makes the Riksbank look marginally more hawkish. Still, there isn't pointedly hawkish stuff as the rate forecasts remain unchanged and the SEK has only rallied modestly - there could be some more upside for SEK on this as short rates are well off their recent lows and near the high end of the recent range after this announcement, but we're not expecting fireworks. Do note the technical importance of the 9.6750 area in EURSEK, as a break could lead to another leg lower.
