“First, the flow picture should turn increasingly EUR-negative as Euro area residents send funds abroad and reserve managers allocate away from the EUR. Second, we think there is a structural element to disinflation in the periphery as it continues to improve competitiveness compared with the core of the Euro area.

This will keep ECB policy accommodative, maintaining downward pressure on the EUR” written in the report.

Oil prices closed the Asian session slightly lower. The prices started to decline yesterday after a deal between Russia and Saudi Arabia was announced, according to which an agreement was reached to freeze the production on current level. However this move disappointed investors, as it will have a little impact on global oversupply and thus won’t affect prices much.
