What the Fed has signalled to ECB – Deutsche Bank

FXStreet (Delhi) – Research Team at Deutsche Bank, suggest that assuming this is a short delay of Fed tightening; the ramifications for our views on the euro area and ECB policy are not significant.

Key Quotes

“The market had backed away from a September Fed hike. Global uncertainties and associated tighter financial conditions were the key reasons for the Fed stalling. These were the same reasons the ECB adopted a more dovish tone at its press conference on 3 September.”

“The recent China uncertainties raised the probability of a general increase in ECB QE, but the risk remains below 50% in our opinion. It is a live situation and the ECB will be monitoring: China’s impact on the euro area economy, whether tighter market-based financial conditions — including the euro exchange rate which is at risk of being moved around by changing perceptions of the Fed policy stance — are counterbalanced by easier bank-based financial conditions, and the evolution of euro area inflation and inflation expectations.”
