ECB QE Monitor - June 2020


Key points for this month:

  • ECB strengthened its intention to make its action long-term:
    • The ECB revised its medium-term inflation target substantially on the downside. Core inflation is forecast to reach only 0.9% in 2022 (0.8% in 2020, 0.7% in 2021).
    • The ECB justified the adjustment of the size of the PEPP by the revision of its inflation outlook.The ECB increased the size of the PEPP by €600bn to 1,350bn and extended the program at least until the end of June 2021.
    • The Governing Council decided to reinvest maturing securities under the PEPP at least until the end of 2022.  
  • The ECB approach is very flexible. The ECB reduces its purchases in a risk-on environment. Purchasing volume last week was at its lowest level since the introduction of the PEPP (30.5 billion euros; PEPP: 20.2 billion euros and PSPP: 10.3 billion euros). 
  • The deviations from the capital key allocation remain limited if account is taken of purchases made under both the PEPP and APP.
