Mario Draghi spoke at a conference yesterday afternoon and warned his peers that the Euro’s volatility is and will remain to cause inflationary headwinds and the Euro’s effects will be constantly measured.
Last week the Euro had a very positive string of economic data releases and possibly even more crucially, no ECB members that tried to talk the Euro’s recent strength down.
Whilst his speech did little to derail the Euro, analysts have already commented that Mario Draghi’s cautious tone could cause Euro weakness further down if the ECB don’t clarify when they are due to tighten their monetary policy, scheduled to end before the end of 2018 at present.
The ECB is concerned that the Euro’s recent strength will have a negative effect, particularly for exports and inflation.
Little seems to be able to derail the Euro’s strength of late and with no major economic releases, the Euro looks likely to stay in the driving seat, especially against Sterling.
The EU is expecting an official update from the UK regarding its plans for future trade talks by the end of the week. Yesterday Michael Barnier stepped up the pressure on the UK EU trade deal to be agreed by stating that time is of the essence if the deadline is to be met and is the main reason why he was in the UK yesterday.
There are two members of the ECB talking on Wednesday, and their speeches will consist of talking about the Euro’s recent strength and the implications this brings, however I expect the markets to look through and continue to strengthen this week.
