BUCHAREST, Nov 11 (Reuters) - Romania's annual inflation stood at 1.9 percent in October, flat from September and in line with market consensus, data from the National Statistics Board showed on Monday.
The Board said consumer prices were up 0.3 percent on the month. Food prices rose 0.5 percent and non-food prices were up 0.1 percent. Services edged up 0.5 percent.
A median forecast of 14 analysts showed Romanian inflation at 1.9 percent year-on-year and at 0.3 percent month-on-month in October.
The central bank cut interest rates four times this year by a total of 125 basis points to a record low of 4.00 percent. Last week it also cut its end-December inflation forecast to 1.8 pct from 3.1 percent.
