Eu Rates Seen To Be Going Up Sooner Than Expected

Eurozone bonds fall on rate hawkishness

Increasing fears that
interest rates in the eurozone would rise sooner than expected
continued to push eurozone government bonds lower on Thursday.
The fears have been sparked by recent hawkish comments by European Central Bank policymakers.
The second estimate of eurozone CPI (NYSE: CPY - news) inflation for February, which on Thursday confirmed that inflation slipped back from 2.4 per cent to 2.3 per cent, did little to assuage those fears.
The figure has remained above the ECB’s target of “close to, but less than, 2 per cent” for the 13th consecutive month.

The news from the US that IR may not have to rise as fast and as far as expected was based on benign CPI reflecting lower fuel costs in the short term. The world trend has not changed based on a single CPI report.
