  • ECB to Boost Risk-On Mood if Draghi Hints at More Stimulus
  • Sentiment Swings May Cloud Impact of US CPI on Fed Bets

The promise of stimulus expansion following soft CPI figures at this week's ECB monetary policy announcement may likewise prove supportive.

This means an improvement in risk appetite my likewise fuel some normalization on the Fed outlook front. Against this backdrop, CPI may fail to register as a discrete catalyst, at least in the near term. A status-quo monetary policy announcement from the Bank of Canada may likewise pass with little fanfare.
