It’s obviously poll day in Reuters Towers, and this time it’s the ECB in the firing line

  • 90% of 70 economists say the ECB will finish QE by year end
  • 26 say they’ll finish end-Sep, wtih 20% of those saying earlier. 4 said they’d stop in Oct
  • They reckon CPI will average 1.5% (vs 1.4% prior) in 2018 & 1.6% in 2019 (unch)

These might be the same economists who were polled for the NAFTA survey, or they may not be. That will be one of the unanswered mysteries of life.
