BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) – Analysts polled by Argentina’s central bank raised their estimate for annual inflation for this year to 185.0%, the bank said on Monday, up from last month’s estimate of 180.7%.

The Market Expectations Survey (REM), conducted between Oct. 27 to 31 among 38 participants from consulting firms, financial entities and local and international research centers, estimated monthly inflation will reach 11.5% in November.

Annualized inflation hit 142.7% in October, the country’s statistics office said on Monday, with the monthly rise landing at 8.3%, although that was down from peaks in August and September and below analyst forecasts.
