Monetary policy is the set of actions taken by Banco de México to influence interest rates and inflation expectations in order to make price behavior consistent with the objective of ensuring an environment of low and stable inflation. In order to accomplish this objective the central bank has defined an operating target to guide its implementation of monetary policy. Since January 21, 2008, Banco de México has adopted the overnight interbank rate as its key monetary policy interest rate.

The monetary policy committee meets monthly and announces the rate decision at this time.

The banking funding rate, or representative interest rate, on one day repo and one day outright operations with certificates of deposit, bank notes and banker's acceptances, traded by banks and stockbrokerage firms in the wholesale market settled through the delivery versus payment system in INDEVAL (securities clearing house).
