POLL-Mexican inflation seen having ended 2019 at lowest in over 3 years

MEXICO CITY, Jan 8 (Reuters) - Mexican annual inflation is forecast to have ended 2019 at its lowest level since August 2016, underpinning expectations the central bank will continue cutting the benchmark interest rate, a Reuters poll showed on Wednesday.

The median forecast of 10 banks, brokerages and analysts was for annual inflation to have closed last year at 2.76%, below the central bank's inflation target of 3.0%.
