Today's meeting of the European Central Bank will approach monetary policy in two scenarios:

• First scenario: the Council will stick to its view that the economy will recover in the second half of the year.

• Second: whether it will reduce the expectations for growth and inflation outlook to cause a reaction in the euro.

• The EU Commission has recommended starting a disciplined process against Italy (Negative for Euro). Due to high public debt sector around 130%, according to the criteria, 60% are permitted.


Market Expectations:

1. The Market believes that the ECB will have a dovish stance and discounting a 10bp rate cut by next period.

2. It is expected that after the first quarter figures there will be an upward revision of the growth and inflation outlook for 2019.
