Last week’s softer than expected German CPI poses downside risks to the Eurozone inflation metrics. As such, this will likely embolden the dovish stance from the ECB who are set to announce the details of their TLTRO package. Alongside this, with regard to the monetary policy statement, given the little signs of a recovery in the Euro-Area, the central bank is likely to cite risks to the downside have increased. Key support situated at 11500 following the break below 11800.
