The ECB’s New Macroeconomic RealismProject Syndicate
The ECB has finally crossed the Rubicon and launched a bold policy of quantitative easing, which may help arrest Europe’s slide into stagnation. Even if it is not an effective growth strategy, QE should be welcomed; indeed, the ECB should be encouraged to do everything in its power to ease monetary conditions.

ECB QE larger than expected, but unlikely to solve Eurozone woesOpen Europe
The ECB today unveiled its widely anticipated Quantitative Easing programme. But can it really boost inflation and growth in the Eurozone? Has the ECB compromised on the structure of the plan too much?

ECB: Open-ended QE with limited risk-sharingNordea
The ECB Governing Council had the courage to launch quite a bold asset purchase programme, in our view. The programme lasting until at least September 2016 equals 11% of Euro-area GDP or EUR 3400 per inhabitant, and it can be extended if inflation remains too low. We find the programme credible and continue to think that as the dust settles, long yields will rebound in the near-term, and so will semi-core spreads. That said, the general yield level will remain depressed for a long time.

ECB market take: Good, bad, and bothNordea
Today QE came. The size and pace of the program is a positive surprise to us. The low risk-sharing and the TLTRO-tinkering are not. Despite Draghi’s stance, it actually does matter whether risk-sharing is 20% or 100%. In scenarios, Germany will perform on this. Violent moves in the market, especially on long yields and break-evens.

Daily MacroWSJ
The ECB is at long last expected to launch what counts as conventional quantitative easing – buying debt from the region’s governments on a major scale. Figures bandied about suggest from EUR600 billion to more than EUR1 trillion in balance sheet expansion. Whether that’s enough to overcome the eurozone’s significant fundamental problems – not least bad demographics – is another matter.
