In UE, in assenza di notizie rilevanti o in controtendenza, il policymaker Kazaks afferma come il taglio dei tassi a giugno da parte della BCE sia altamente probabile, mentre continua compiaciuto circa l’approccio data-dependent dell’Istituto europeo, sostenendo come sia quello giusto per rispondere ad un’economia incerta come quella che stiamo vivendo.

Gli investitori statunitensi attendono invece ulteriori informazioni per capire il percorso dei tassi di interesse alla luce dei commenti prudenti dei funzionari della Federal Reserve, sebbene l’inflazione mostri segni di raffreddamento. Il presidente della Fed di Atlanta,

Raphael Bostic, sostiene come ci vorrà un po’ di tempo affinché la banca centrale americana sia sicura che l’inflazione sia sulla buona strada per tornare all’obiettivo del 2%.

I mercati inglesi attendono i dati sull’inflazione di aprile in settimana, che dovrebbero mostrare un ritorno verso l’obiettivo della Banca d’Inghilterra. A tal proposito, il Governatore della BoE Broadbent reitera come, anche a seconda della stabilità del mercato lavoro, i tassi potrebbero essere tagliati più di una volta nei prossimi mesi.
