Tout nouveau resserrement monétaire est désormais écarté cette année, mais il nous semble encore un peu prématuré de parler d’une baisse du taux repo.

repo rate
Explanation:
It's a direct translation. Here's a definition of repo rate. It's used by the Central European Bank:

Sur cette base, la BCE agit sur le taux repo, c'est-à-dire le taux d'intérêt auquel les banques se refinancent auprès de la BCE et qui influe sur les conditions de crédit proposées aux entreprises et aux particuliers.

It is in use in English language publications. There is a reference to the European Central Bank's "repo rate" here

Here\'s an English definition from http://www.1loansusa.com/interestrates2.html:

Repo Rate: Used by the Reserve Bank to regulate liquidity. Banks borrows money from the Reserve Bank to cover its shortfall. The Reserve Bank only makes a certain amount of money available and this determines the repo rate. If the bank requires more money than what is available, this will increase the repo rate - and vice versa.
