(EUNN) London - The European Central Bank said that it may consider raising
interest rates more
than anticipated following a meeting of ECB policymakers Friday.
ECB President Jean-Claude Trichet signaled a rate rise in June but Friday, policymakers said they were leaving open the possibility of a
bigger than expected rate rise
.
In speaking to reporters a conference in the German town of Eltville, Governing Council member Axel Weber was quoted as saying, "I don't want to be misunderstood, but all options are always open." His comment was in response to a reporters question of a
possible half-point interest rate increase.
Over the last two quarter-point ECB rate increases it did little to curb inflation.
"We are in an environment where we have a very strong liquidity dynamic. It has increased despite the two rate moves, and we have more liquidity than is needed to finance non-inflationary growth," said Weber.

The warning sirens are wailing--its time to try to get out of interest rate sensitive assets while you can :o

The ECB's inflation target is 2.00%, actual inflation 2.40% and accelerating.

The ECB's M3 money supply growth target is 4.5%, actual growth is 8.6%.

.50% next time? That is going to impact Ireland somewhat as their bubble is tighter than the UK and tighter than a_____ _________ :lol:

I think .25 is enough to do it - look what happened last year, until they were eased off... bring it on! :)
