Ожидания относительно LTRO
We conclude that the allotted amount is likely to be between EUR300bn and EUR600bn.
A smaller amount would cause sovereign spreads to widen, while a bigger amount would be likely to cause the most notable market reaction with a risk rally in many asset classes.
We regard a large amount as EUR/USD supportive given the positive effect on risk assets
Market reaction to a level of EUR350-550bn is likely to be relatively muted. There are two channels through which we expect markets to price the LTRO — by reducing the level of risk premium on European assets and by easing monetary conditions further through an expansion in the ECB's balance sheet.
If the sum taken out is below 400 billion euros, this may also be viewed as positive, according to Peter Schaffrik, head of European interest rate strategy at Royal Bank of Canada, as it could indicate that banks do not need the new source of funding
