Esta proyección toma en cuenta que: i) los indicadores actuales y adelantados de la actividad económica continúan mostrando un crecimiento por debajo de su potencial; ii) las expectativas de inflación permanecen ancladas dentro del rango meta; iii) los indicadores internacionales recientes muestran señales mixtas de recuperación de la economía mundial, así como una mayor volatilidad en los mercados financieros y de cambios; y iv) los factores de oferta, que elevaron la inflación, se vienen moderando.La siguiente sesión del Programa Monetario será el 13 de noviembre de 2014.
