REFILE-Swedish central bank holds rate, still sees hike around end of year

(Changes headline to clarify timing of next rate move)

STOCKHOLM, Sept 6 (Reuters) - Sweden’s central bank left its benchmark rate unchanged on Thursday and said it still expected to begin gradually tightening policy toward the end of the year.

At its previous meeting in July, the central bank had said its first rate increase since 2011 could come either in October or December this year.
