  1. December 2021 Market Review and Outlook Money Market Review Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) maintained the Overnight Policy Rate (OPR) at 1.75% on 3rd November, as it considers the current monetary policy stance to be appropriate and accommodative. Growth recovery going into 2022 is expected to be supported by the gradual easing of restrictions coupled with growth in global demand, higher private sector expenditure in line with the reopening of economic activity and continued policy support. However, growth prospects could be moderated by weaker-than-expected global growth, supply chain disruptions and further lockdowns on concerns over new Covid-19 variants. Meanwhile, the international reserves of BNM stood at USD116.5 billion as at 15th November. The reserves position is sufficient to finance 8.1 months of retained imports and is 1.2 times total shortterm external debt. Money Market Outlook Given the improving global growth outlook, central banks may consider to progressively normalise their monetary policy. This includes BNM which may look to gradually unwind the interest rate cuts which were implemented in 2020. Nevertheless, given the persistent uncertainties, we expect BNM to remain accommodative in its monetary policy stance to support and sustain the recovery heading into 2022. BNM is expected to remain data-dependent with a focus on the overall outlook for economic growth, labour market and inflation before policy normalisation begins.
