PERTINENT POINTS OF THE 9 JUNE ECB MEETING:

  • Rates left unchanged but the ECB intends to raise by 25 basis points in July
  • ECB intends to reinvest, in full, principal payments of maturing securities under both APP and PEPP. PEPP reinvestments to continue until end of 2024 at a minimum while leaving APP reinvestments open-ended. Purchases under PEPP could be resumed if necessary to counter negative shocks related to the pandemic.
  • Real Annual GDP growth: 2.8% 2020, 2.1% in 2023 and 2.1% in 2024
  • ECB Inflation forecast 6.8% in 2022, 3.5% in 2023 and 2.1% in 2024
  • "If medium-term inflation outlook persists/deteriorates, a larger than 25 bps hike will be appropriate for the September meeting"

EUR/USD rose in the lead up to the announcement, shot below 1.070 and subsequently recovered and is trading right where it was moment before the news.

The justification behind a 50 basis point hike in July is gaining momentum by the day as HICP inflation more than doubled the previous high of 4% in 2008. Something that the Bank is trying to avoid is fragmentation in the bond market – a situation where sovereign bond spreads within the EU widen, disproportionately raising borrowing costs for the more heavily indebted nations like Spain, Italy and Greece.
