LINK. If no economic sanctions are implemented, markets will forget Ukraine’s crisis just as they did with Syria. Don’t miss Mario Draghi’s conference on Thursday evening: he could say something relevant about monetary policy in a context of the deflation threat affecting many Eurozone countries.
SANTANDER. EU’s agreement on SRM must be hastened in order to give stress tests credibility and meet the Banking Union schedule.
AFI. 40% of the RPI items in Spain have negative annual variation rates. Inflation has been zero for six consecutive months. Treasury may resort to inflation-indexed bonds.
