Maybank Investment Bank Bhd chief economist Suhaimi Ilias, who expects prices to go up 3% in December, said this was due to the base-effect from the corresponding month in 2010 when the pace of price rises was faster.
Suhaimi said opinions were still divided as to whether the central bank would cut the key policy rate, which stood at 3%, in order to support growth.
The overnight policy rate (OPR) has been kept at 3% since last May after rates were raised four times from 2% in March 2010.
"I believe the central bank will not cut the OPR in the upcoming policy meeting," Suhaimi said. Bank Negara's monetary policy committee meets twice in the first quarter on Jan 31 and March 9.
Suhaimi said instead of a rate cut, the various Economic Transformation Programme projects would be used to stimulate the economy and boost domestic demand.

Suhaimi Ilias, regional economist with Maybank Investment Bank in Kuala Lumpur, says it is only a matter of time before the yuan becomes fully convertible.
Ilias of Maybank Investment Bank says a number of factors contributed to China's launch of its yuan trade settlement back in 2009.
"It was partly in reaction to the US dollar liquidity crunch following the global ?nancial crisis, China's growing economic stature and the need to re-balance its own currency composition of huge external reserves," he says.
The aim, he adds, was to essentially reduce the overdependence on the US dollar as the major settlement currency.
"In Malaysia we started in November 2009 with Maybank being one of the local participating banks," Ilias says.
I would not be surprised if we have something formal in place by the end of the year," Ilias says.
