“There has been a notable pick-up in the pace of vaccine roll-out especially in Germany and Spain where the total number of people who have received one dose has increased by more than 50% in the first half of April. It provides encouragement that the eurozone economy will be able to reopen as well during the second half of this year.” 

“Market participants are already beginning to anticipate that the ECB will slow down the pace of QE purchases in Q3 which alongside the improving growth outlook is helping to lift European yields and the euro. However, we do not expect the ECB to provide more clarity on QE purchase plans beyond Q2 at the current juncture.”
