German judges refer ECB’s bond-buying to European Court

Germany’s Constitutional Court will refer a complaint against the European Central Bank’s flagship “unlimited”  bond-buying plan to the European Court, removing the prospect of it curbing the program.

The court said on Friday there was good reason to think the scheme “exceeds the European Central Bank’s monetary policy mandate and thus infringes the powers of the member states, and that it violates the prohibition of monetary financing of the budget”.

The ECB’s Outright Monetary Transactions (OMT) programme, announced by ECB chief Mario Draghi in September 2012 at the height of the sovereign debt crisis, is widely credited with stabilising the euro.

Draghi as ECB Master of Suspense Keeps Investors on Edge

Mario Draghi’s habit of springing surprises means that few can say what he’ll do when European Central Bank officials decide on monetary policy today.

Inflation at a four-year low and volatile market rates speak for further action by the Governing Council, even after it cut official rates to record lows in November. At the same time, signs of economic improvement and the central bank’s prediction that price gains will gradually return to target suggest the ECB president may prefer to hold fire. That’s the call by 62 of the 66 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News, while 4 predict a cut in the benchmark rate to 0.1 percent from 0.25 percent.

Tomorrow the ECB decision will surely bring some volatility.

None of my tickers are showing much action today. Yen crosses are down modestly but nothing compared to the volatility we’ve seen over the past few days.

FX moves

The euro tried the upside a few times today and will close out the day with some small gains but tomorrow the ECB decision will surely bring some volatility.

Draghi & Co can opt to do nothing or take action in three different ways:

  1. A 10-15 basis point cut in the main refi rate
  2. Switching to unsterilized bond purchases (QE)
  3. Negative deposit rates

The legality of option #2 is questionable. Any of those move would spark euro selling, partially because it implies more future action.

Ten days ago, the market was comfortable with a wait-and-see decision but soft inflation readings have put pressure on the ECB to act.
