Key Quotes

“Last week after the ECB meeting, we saw a December move as less likely – but still very possible – than a March 2016 move. A series of developments (dovish tone from ECB board members, weakness in credit dynamics, Fed action delayed) has changed our minds.”

“We expect: 1) a 10bp deposit rate cut, which happened the last two times; 2) an increase in the size of asset purchases from €60bn to €70-80bn (adding also corporate bonds); 3) an extension of the QE and TLTRO programmes beyond September 2016. We expect the ECB to indicate that the QE programme will run until inflation rates near 2%.”
