Today’s release is no exception: the IFO sentiment in Germany was disappointing on all fronts and was below not even the most optimistic forecasts. Given the worrying economic signals at the upcoming meeting, Draghi is likely to demonstrate the “pigeon” rhetoric, and Express concern about the health of their economies and conflicts in the world.
