Also, there are reports of ECB’s Holzmann calling for 50 bps rate hikes by fall, and Estonia’s governor Muller flagging the chance of the bond purchase programme ending in July. The ECB said that any adjustments to interest rates will take place some time after the end of the Governing Council’s net purchases under the APP, expected in Q3, and will be gradual. On the data front, Germany’s March inflation was confirmed at 7.3%, the highest since 1981, while wholesale inflation hit a record high.
